Black Eyed Beans Tong Shui

Black Eyed Peas

Got some black eyed beans/peas to make some sweet soup (tong shui) since it has been a long while I have this.

Easy peasy - boil the beans until tender (much faster than red beans!) before adding rock sugar to taste. Then swirl in beaten eggs. Done!

A world that i've seen said...

it's canellini bean..
can boil it with lotus root soup too..
some ppl used for chinese dumpling bazhang. :)

jo, these are not canellini beans. canellini is flatter and lighter in colour and does not have black center. in Canton, these black eyed beans are known as "mei dau" and used in bak chang but i din know can be used in lotus roots soup. thanks for the tip.
