How To Make Sweet Red Bean Soup (紅豆湯) from China's Guangdong Province (Vegan)
This weekend, I attended my very first traditional Chinese wedding, as two friends who I study Korean with ended up falling in all sorts of love and decided to spend the rest of their lives together. The wedding was completely amazing. I loved being able to meet their families, learn all about their specific wedding customs and, of course, eat a ridiculous amount of Cantonese food. (In Chinese tradition, weddings can serve anywhere from 10 - 12 courses. Ours stopped right at 11!) One of the very last dishes we ate was Hóng Dòu Tāng, a sweet red bean soup served in a thin broth with simmered lotus seeds. I have seen this dish around, especially at the Taiwanese tea house I'm often frequenting, and couldn't wait to try it myself. The soup is a wonderful combination of sweet and savory, and the lotus seed has a nice nutty flavor and texture similar to peanuts. You should be able to find all of these ingredients at most Asian markets. This recipe can be made without lotus seeds, of course, but lotus seeds are full of good nutrition and are constantly used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat anything from insomnia to gastrointestinal problems - which is why it's the perfect bowl to end the night with! ------------------------------------------------------ Sweet Red Bean Soup (Hóng Dòu Tāng) 1 cup red beans (You can probably find these canned, but fresh is best if possible.) 15 dried lotus seeds 1 piece dried tangerine peel 4 - 5 tablespoons brown sugar Water 1 - 2 tablespoons fine glutinous rice flour in equal parts of water for thickening to your desired consistency Some coconut milk for drizzling over soup 1. Wash red beans in several rinses of water until water runs clear of dirt and grit. Put into a pot, fill with water to a height equivalent to the length of your index finger - roughly 2 inches - above the beans. Bring to a boil, and let par-boil for 15 minutes. Turn off heat, cover with lid, and let it sit for half an hour to let the hot water soften the tough bean husks. 2. Meanwhile, soak dried tangerine peel in water for 15 minutes or until soft. Using the blunt end of a small knife, scrape off the pith on the inside of the peel. Wash clean, and then wash the lotus seeds as well. 3. Bring the pot of red beans back to a boil, add the washed tangerine peel, lotus seeds, and half of the brown sugar. Reduce to medium heat, let simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until the beans are soft. Skim foam off the surface as it forms. Add water if the liquid reduces too much. When beans are soft and cracked open, do a taste test and add sugar to your desired sweetness. 4. To thicken the soup slightly, stir the glutinous rice flour solution into the soup, little by little, letting the heat cook through before adding more. Stop when desired consistency is reached. Dish out into serving bowls, drizzled with some coconut milk, if desired.
Travel Singapore: 6 Dishes You Have to Try!
I just got back from Singapore which was basically just me eating everything in sight for 4 days straight. Here are 6 things I had a loved, but keep in mind there are a billion other things you have to try there as well! (Not listed: chili craaaaaaaaaaab!!!!!!) Pictured above: Teh O Limau (black tea with lime!) 1. Murtabak Murtabak is a super tasty dish from the Middle East that I could probably eat every day. You can get nearly any filling you want (we chose one Chicken and one sardine) and it will be wrapped up in a delicious bread similar to na'an or paratha. We got curry to dip it in and it tasted fantastic! 2. Fish Ball Soup For the unadventurous or those who avoid spice, this fish ball soup is perfect. If you find that traveling gave you an upset stomach, this simple broth with some onion, noodles, and a few balls made from fish will have you feeling better in no time. Serious comfort food. 3. Carrot Cake Carrot cake is my favorite thing on this earth. Rather than carrots, it is made using radish that has been pounded into a soft almost noodle. Think gnocchi, but with radish! It's then fried up with egg and chilis, then (if you get black carrot cake) tossed around in some soy sauce. It's DELICIOUS. 4. BBQ Sting Ray The dish to the left is bbq string ray, the first thing I ever ate in Singapore. Its a fishy taste covered in a really awesome chili sauce. Once I got the fact that it was sting ray out of my mind, it tasted just like any other fish I love eating! 5. Popiah See that egg roll looking thing? That's popiah. At first I expected something like the Filipino dish lumpia, but it is so much sweeter than that. These spring rolls are common in Singapore, Taiwan, and Malaysia and are filled with fresh veggies. You can get them spicier, but they'll always have a distinctly sweet taste to it. 6. Kaya Toast (with Teh O) Made from a mixture of coconut and egg (which I just found out last week, after years of eating kaya...) Kaya jam is one of the yummiest things you can spread on toast. Traditional kaya toast has kaya and a few thick slices of butter sandwiched between two freshly toasted slices of bread. Usually its also served with soft boiled eggs which you can add soy sauce to. Get your kaya toast with some kopi or teh o (black coffee or black tea) to start your day right! I also tried Salted Egg Yolk Croissant, since salted egg yolk ANYTHING is a huge deal in Singapore right now. And to be honest, I really didn't like it. It tasted like what happens when you make icing and add too much powdered sugar. It was really dry and didn't even taste like salt or egg at all. Maybe it's not supposed to and I'm missing the point, but I wasn't a fan :/ Have you ever had Singaporean food? What's your favorite?!
