HIyashi Zenzai --- Cold Dessert with Red Beans


Cold sweet dessert... I bought on the way home.
Zenzai.... is usually hot, but in Summer, this chilled dessert will sooth you.

After eating spicy Jah-Jah-Men ( in Japanese, the pronunciation is like that.) , it soothed my mouth.

I often hear that foreigners don't like sweet red bean jam, but I like it. Red beans is good for you.

Red bean has diuretic effect, so if you tend to have swelling, it helps to reduce it.
Also, red bean has protein, vitamin B1 , iron..... good to have in this exhausting weather.

Its season is Winter, but as you know dried beans are in the store throughout a year, so you can always find this kind of dessert or canned beans.
