Green Bean Sago Soup

Thursday, June 4, 2009





The weather has been very hot and humid for the past few days that few of my family members are not feeling well. In Chinese tradditional method, we normally will cook some cooling food to cool down our “heaty” bodies. One of the most popular dish is green bean soup. It’s really a type of dessert that can be eaten hot or cold.

My green bean soup is added with sago pearl for more texture. It is actually tasteless but it added a smooth texture to the soup, making it more delicious. Green bean soup can be made into ice-cream or popsicles too, which can last longer in the freezer. Yum!
