Azuki/ Red Bean Sweet Soup Recipe

Cooking Chinese sweet soup dessert (tong sui, 糖水) is always an easy job. Don’t you agree?

It’s so easy peasy, lemon squeezy Japanese easy!!

There are many different types of Chinese sweet soup that are easy to cook by just using a slow cooker. One of it is the azuki/ red bean sweet soup, which is the recipe that I am going to share today.

Chinese Azuki/ Red Bean Sweet Soup served with steamed yam cake

A simple bowl of Azuki beans soup goes really well with some savoury snacks. My family always love to pair it up with some steamed yam cakes. Whenever there’s steamed yam cake, there’ll be this plain/ basic azuki/ red bean sweet soup at my household.

Some people/ places will add in some glutinous rice balls (tang yuen, 汤圆) to this soup as well. I like mine to be plain instead. Anything less is more right?!

You can always prepare this using a slow cooker the night before, or if you don’t own a slow cooker, you can always cook it over a stove.

What I like about using a slow cooker is that;

  • I don’t have to worry about the beans/ soup being burnt
  • I can let the cooking being done while I am sleeping or outside of home
  • Minimal supervision needed and etc etc
