    Nolita_Food's Note:

    This is a wonderful dessert that you can serve hot or cold. Amazingly fresh, perfect for summer. And it's very versatile. You can use mung beans, white beans instead of red beans.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/3-1/2 cup sugar
    • 1 cup red beans (soaked in cold water overnight)
    • 1/3 cup dried lotus seeds (at asian grocery stores or health food stores, soaked in cold water overnight)
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla
    • 1/4 cup pearl tapioca (optional)
    • 1/4 cup glutten rice balls (can be found at asian grocery stores) (optional)
    • 7 cups water

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine water and beans in a large pot, bring to a boil.
    2. 2
      Reduce heat to simmer, cook uncovered till beans are tender (about 2 hours?).
    3. 3
      Add lotus seed and sugar (plus tapioca and rice balls if you choose to), cook until soup thickens a little and lotus seeds are tender, but not mushy (20 minutes).
    4. 4
      Add vanilla, serve hot for a perfect winter dessert, or you can let the soup cool down, then add ice.
    5. 5
      With this basic recipe, you can take out all the beans, increase the amount of lotus seeds and have a lotus seeds sweet soup instead.

      My photo looks a little different from the recipe because I used lily bulbs instead of lotus seeds. I used one 12 pkg azuki beans and then added in the lily bulbs and 6 oz rock candy in Step #3. It is delicious but I enjoy it more as a breakfast (similar to a sweet oatmeal) than a dessert.
