Hong Dou Sha / Kidney Beans Paste Simply Recipe

in Plant Power (Vegan)8 days ago


Hello everyone and plant power community,
Warm greetings to all of us..

Many types of nuts were created by God as one of the foods that are rich in nutrition, vitamins and minerals that thrive on the face of the earth, these nuts are rich in sweet, savory and delicious flavors. This makes humans should be grateful because they are given enormous pleasure.

I often hear that nuts have great nutritional value, capable of being a medicine for the sick with a good taste too. Like almonds, walnuts, peanuts, kidney beans, mung beans and many other nuts which have high amino acids as a substitute for damaged cells in the human body.

Even though peanuts have high nutrition and are good for the body, the taste of nuts is very good unlike medicinal plants, so it is not uncommon for nuts to be used as a side dish or snack that can be consumed daily within sufficient limits and not excessively.

All types of nuts can even be made into pasta, such as peanut butter, almond paste, Taosa or commonly called mung bean paste and kidney paste. All of these nuts are used as a flavor enhancer and filling for bread and snack fillings. Moreover, kidney beans are very popular as a filling for mochi, bread, dumplings and buns, because they taste delicious, soft and melt in the mouth. For this reason, kidney beans are the most suitable beans for filling any type of food. Oh yes, kidney bean paste is also commonly called Hong Dou Sha in Chinese, you know.




However, many people love to buy kidney bean paste without knowing how to process kidney beans properly. So it is often found that food filled with kidney beans is not tasty and not fresh. For that reason, if you want to make something food using kidney beans, we have to know how to make it, so that the taste of the kidney bean paste really feels fresh and homemade.

Here I really want to share my experience on how to make kidney beans, especially for vegans who really like this delicious paste as a food additive for vegan bread, buns and dumplings. Kidney beans can also be used as filling for dumplings, which are Indonesian original snacks made 100% from plants, no milk, no animal and cruelty free. So, here's a recipe for making kidney bean paste which is easy, simple and fail-safe. Check this out!

Hi there, @aswita. 😃 I think I am a fan of your delicious recipes. I see making Kidney beans paste is not as hard as I thought. What is the importance of adding pandan leaves to the beans paste?

This is nice. I may give it a try. Thanks for sharing. 😃😊😊

adding pandan leaves will make a delicious aroma for paste, pandan leaves always have their own advantages when mixed in various foods that contain palm sugar. it's like a secret recipe that is rarely known by many people :D

Is think this is also used in Japan, it's funny because I saw it when they were talking about people thinking the dessert was filled with chocolate and it was actually filled with a paste similar to this. What was even more surprising to me was that a lot of people actually prefer the bean paste, so, I guess this is actually pretty good. Thanks for sharing!

I think kidney beans filling is always more delicious because it has its own special taste :)
