Thick and glossy sweet red bean soup (紅豆湯) with soft, chewy tang yuan (湯圓). A heavenly pairing! One of my favorite traditional desserts.
Sweet red Bean Soup (紅豆湯) is a ubiquitous one amongst East Asian cuisine – you’ll find the dessert enjoyed in China, Korea, Taiwan, and Japan alike. Growing up in Taiwan, I’ve certainly had my fair share of red bean soup. To me, the perfect bowl is thick and sweet; each red bean is intact and distinct, but falls apart in your mouth like puree.
Will need to make this soon. Have eaten several red bean desserts in Beijing and one of the most memorable was a kind of red bean soup poured over milk ice. I think it was in a Ken Hom restaurant.
I love your recipes!
I came here hoping to find vegan Niu Rou Mian, because I know you are an excellent cook!
I will eat this soup until you develop a vegan Niu Rou Mian 🙂
Thank you for providing this site 🙂
