Gooey Red Bean Soup with Tofu & Vanilla Nougat Flavour Black Tea
A good treat for a celebration of turning over winter solstice of this year. For a healthy meal, Pt. 2. Yule block is on its own way, but first, red bean soups with tofu. Free from Added Sugar and Sugar Alcohols.
It might be not picture perfect food, this was made out of a hearty, filling and healthful dish as major approaches of Asian winter solstice tradition though. Red beans do mean an auspicious start by cutting bad luck, it has been considered as a common thread among countries in the Far East, traditional custom wise.
Besides, red bean has many healthful benefits in itself. Applying them to your food would provide you a nice option for plant based diet, on the condition the entire carb content of your meal could hold itself off appropriately. Plus, it would be an idea for Christmas pudding alternatives as the distinctive texture and sweetness of red beans. With a gluten free and low carb friendly thickener such as arrow root flour, you could just have your way. Not so much a rocket science. On that, this batch was tweaked by savory tooth taste though, I’m going to omit the details.
Overall, red bean recipes has been equated with typical sweet treat recipes for a very long time. If you blow your viewpoint up to a whole section, a few cases for quite nice savory food could come up. Still, it’s safe to say there’s no remarkable exception around winter solstice food variation sections.
Some point, there’s room for even healthier choices in a sense of traditional boundary scheme though. I’ve mentioned the distinctive texture and sweetness of red bean a few times : actually, it’s not necessary to candy red beans, for sure, in case you’re fully cooking them. Red bean does bring out its own sweetness once cooked. Completely mashed or half mashed, it would give you a chance to experience earthy sweetness in nutritious food, rather than too strong sweetness from refined sugars. I highly recommend adding a pinch of salt to your red beans so that its sweetness would become rich.
