During the hot summer days, black beans are commonly utilized in households for various culinary purposes. They are often used to prepare sweet soups, stir-fried dishes with boiling water, or cooked into refreshing and easily digestible black bean porridge. Additionally, they can be stir-fried and ground into a smooth powder, ideal for consumption as a nutritious breakfast or dinner beverage.
Creating a delectable sweet soup is not as daunting as it may seem. Simply gently cook the beans until they achieve a soft texture, then incorporate sugar and continue boiling until completely dissolved. However, to prevent the beans from turning mushy while ensuring a luscious sweetness, a special undisclosed technique is required.
To prepare the beans, begin by rinsing and washing them twice. Then, proceed to soak the beans and discard any floating ones. Next, transfer the beans to a pot and set the heat to high. Allow the beans to roast for approximately 10 minutes until the outer surface slightly wrinkles. At this stage, water can be added. This method ensures a concentrated black tea water and hastens the cooking process of the beans.
To prepare the beans, begin by marinating them with sugar for approximately 30 minutes. Next, place the beans on the stove over low heat and gently stir them occasionally, ensuring that the sugar is thoroughly absorbed without burning. Allow the beans to cook for approximately 15 minutes before removing the bean water. Should you desire a sweeter taste, feel free to add more water and sugar to your liking.
