I first saw Helena made this Steamed Black Eye Bean Cake (五香眉豆糕) late last year and Cass also posted hers before the Chinese New Year. Since both talented bloggers commented that this Chinese snack tasted like the steamed yam cake, I too can't wait to follow lol! Totally agree with them, you can also feel the bite of the soft black eye beans. Great to serve for family gathering or party.
You can also pan fried this Steamed Black Eye Bean Cake :)
According to FITDAY, black-eyed beans/peas are very good fiber sources, providing 4 grams or 16% of the recommended daily value. There are two types of dietary fiber: soluble and insoluble. Beans contain mostly soluble fiber, which can help decrease blood cholesterol levels and therefore may help reduce the risk of heart disease. Soluble fiber may also help patients with diabetes maintain improved blood because the fiber helps to slow the rate of absorption of carbohydrate.
