(For 4 Servings)

  • 2 cup Organic adzuki beans
  • 12 cup Water
  • 16 tbsp Raw cane sugar


STEP 1: Soak adzuki beans overnight for at least 8 hours. Rinse next day and drain.
STEP 2: Add soaked adzuki beans and water into a pot, bring to a boil.
STEP 3: Switch to low heat and simmer for 60-90 minutes until beans are extremely soft.
STEP 4: Drain the remaining water and then add sugar. Stir and mash the beans with low-medium heat for 7-8 minutes until the mixture turns into a soft paste. (If you like to make a more smooth paste version, you can blend the mixture in a food processor first, and then cook and stir with low-medium heat until the paste becomes dark and holds in shape).
STEP 5: Transfer the paste to a bowl or container. Let it cool before serving.
