Green bean soup is a type of Chinese dessert (Tong Sui / 糖水). I love this simple dessert since I was a child, and I am so glad that it’s really easy to cook this!
This dessert is usually prepared when the weather is hot here in Singapore, as it is said to be “cooling” and able to “dispel heatiness” in our bodies. I remembered there was a year when the haze was really bad, and the green beans were wiped out on the grocery shelves!
This dessert can be taken hot or chilled – I particularly love eating this chilled on a hot day!
