A new aquaintance
One of the many nice things about having a food blog is that you get to know new nice people, for example Maiko from Japan. She was invited to my dinner party yesterday and very kindly contributed to the menu with this warm dessert - a sweet bean soup served hot with sticky rice cakes in it. It is called "zen-zai" and was very easy to prepare with the canned beans from the tin I am holding in the photo and ready rice cakes cut in small pieces. You can also make it from scratch of course but yesterday these tins came in handy! Everything can be found in Stockholm, for example at "JFK" just by Södra station. Go ahead and try it, it is perfect for cold winter evenings!
