SWEET GREEN BEAN SOUP


One of popular South East Asian desserts made with whole dried green bean (mung bean), coconut milk and palm sugar. It is slow cooked until the beans become soft.

Dried green beans are commonly used to make dessert by processing them into flour. This flour is then churned  into delicious dessert , one such dessert is Koleh Koleh (Green Bean Pudding).

Green bean is a good source of protein, minerals and has a cooling effect on our body. For healthier version, add low fat milk instead of coconut milk.

SWEET GREEN BEAN SOUP
Makes :   4-6 servings

1 1/2 cups uncooked green bean soaked for 2 hours
1/2  cup  palm/brown  sugar or to taste
2  tablespoon   white sugar
1  cup  coconut milk
5  cup  water
2  pieces pandan  leaf knotted
1/4 tsp  salt

Discard any stone and bad beans before soaking. After soaking rinse  the bean with several changes of water. Place the bean into deep pot, covered with water and boil until soft using medium heat. If the water dried up before the bean turns soft, add more water.

Once it turns soft, add in sugar, palm sugar, coconut milk, salt and pandan leaves, bring to a low  boil again. .

Remove the pandan leaf, serve hot or chilled.

I've made soup with mung beans before, but always savory, never sweet. Your sweet version reminds me of rice pudding, which I love! Thanks for sharing this with Sunday Night Soup Night, look forward to seeing you again soon!
PS: would you mind including a link at the end of your post to my Sunday Night Soup Night page? It's one of the link-up rules that everyone is asked to do.
Thanks!
