Using this recipe, I omitted the carrots and mushrooms. I added water chestnuts and baby corn

I use them whenever I want a little extra crunch in a recipe. They are great in any type of salad, can be used along with chopped or sliced apples, stir frys, or maybe I'm crazy, but I love them on a sandwich wrap.

I love water chestnuts! I can't think of any meat (or egg) salad that I don't include tiny diced WC in. I do mean TINY dice! I use very fine julienne/chiffonade WC on top of my salads, too. Along with sprouts. ;-) How about in coleslaw, with some crispy rice noodles and slivered almonds?

I love them sauteed with green beans, or mixed "chinese" vegetables. I've also put them (julienne sliced) with asparagus and spinach and Brussels sprouts. I'm planning to saute some mushrooms in a bit (I eat these things as a main course!), and it sounds good to add some regular-sliced WC to that, too.

They don't have a very strong flavor -- mostly that crispy snap. Anything you want to crisp up would be a possible candidate.

I use them in casseroles when using soups like mushroom or celery for example in green bean casserole or the vegetable casserole.

I love water chestnuts, but I'm running out of ways to use them. Yes, they are delish in spinach dip, and you can stir fry them, but I'd love some other ideas. I also added them to tuna salad.

I really appreciate any help :)
