I am not a vegetable lover. That said, I do like to eat healthy and I know eating lots of veggies is a part of that. When I discovered roasting them I was amazed at how it changed the taste from simply being steamed or sauteed. Roasting Green Beans imparts a yummy slightly sweet and smokey taste that makes them pretty amazing.
Canned red bean paste is an acceptable product, but the homemade kind is obviously much tastier. In Chinese markets, you'll find small, plump dried red beans called hoong dul,not to be confused with adzuki beans, zeck siu dul,also small red beans that are oblong in shape. This recipe makes about 1 1/2 cups of red bean paste, just enough filling for Sesame Balls. Use regular brown sugar for this recipe.
