If you're hungering for an easy dinner and dessert, Jennifer Yu provides a two-in-one for a mung bean soup and a frozen popsicle recipe.
To get to the sweet bean popsicle recipe, you'll first have to simmer some beans in water in a soup. While this could be eaten as a perfect dinner, it also could be eaten as a nice snack or dessert. In this instance, sugar is added for sweetness, and to increase the smoothness once cooled, everything can be puréed to a creamier form. To add versatility and color to the recipe, either mung beans or red adzuki beans can be used. Although it's not uncommon to find red bean ice cream, most beans are typically thought of as savory and this unusual popsicle recipe presents a novel change.
