Can you help me identify a vegetable used in Szechuan cooking?

Answer

Szechuan cuisine utilizes many herbs, spices, vegetables, meats, and starch, like noodles or rice.  The beige vegetable you may be referring to is lotus root. In Asian cuisine, all components (flowers, seeds, young leaves, and roots) of lotus root are edible.
