1/2 cup aduki beans, cooked and cooled

I just made this after overdoing it when cooking aduki beans for a risotto. It works well with a sandwich made with spinach, cucumber, tomato and spring onions on toasted multigrain bread. I was pleasently surprised. Enjoy!

Aduki beans make a great dessert.

Just boil down the beans to a soup consistency. Add sugar, vanilla and soy milk. You can eat it cold or hot. Also, pour the liquid in an ice tray and you can make aduki bean frozen dessert. Aduki beans are very popular in Japan and China for desserts. They are rich in iron.

After I read this I was very excited to try it! When I started making it I didn't like the texture too much, it seemed awfully mealy. I added some sour cream and it really helped.



I took whole wheat bread and lightly buttered it, put it on the griddle with the bean mixture on one piece and monterey jack cheese with fresh sweet peppers on the other piece. Once the cheese was melted I took both pieces off and put cucumber, tomato, sprouts, and onion on. YUMMY!!!
