TRIVIA QUESTION: I am an aquatic plant grown since ancient times. My beautiful, multi-petalled pink flower is sacred to Buddhists as it represents purity. The ancient Egyptians knew about me also, and used one of my flowers to represent the number 1,000. What am I?.
TRIVIA ANSWER: The lotus. All parts of the lotus plant are used in Chinese cooking. You'll find the roots in stir-fries and soups, while lotus leaves are used as a wrapping in the famous dish "Beggar's Chicken." Medicinally, lotus roots are thought to have some power as a diuretic.
