This dish is something my sister would always cook for me when I visited her. As she has gotten older, she's modified the recipe due to certain dietary restrictions and lifestyle choices that she's made, however we all agree it's more delicious this way. Try substituting out the heavy cream found in most vodka sauces with this cashew cream alternative!

I knew I wanted to draw desserts with beans, and upon doing some research, I found that different countries around Asia have their own versions of shaved ice and sweet beans. I wanted to highlight this fact in my illustration, so I made sure to include other ingredients that are particular to each country's interpretation of the dessert. I personally love having lots of beans in my halo-halo!

It’s BEAN in the Family for Generations
This recipe is known in my family as "the cream that no one could taste". I had prepared three vases, one for my family and two for friends and those adorable pests of my cats, probably chasing an insect, managed to drop all the vases to the ground. It took an hour to clean everything!
The day on which it is traditionally eaten is commonly known as the Laba Festival. The earliest form of this dish was cooked with red beans and has since developed into many different kinds. It is mainly made up of many kinds of rice, beans, peanuts, dried fruit, lotus seeds.
In the Han Dynasty, during the Laba Festival, people did not consume Laba congee as it was used for worship the gods. In the Northern and Southern Dynasties period, the date of the Laba Festival was fixed on the eighth day of the twelfth lunar month. In the Song Dynasty, Laba congee was widely consumed throughout China by not only the common people, but also government officials and aristocrats. In the Qing Dynasty, the Laba Festival was sometimes celebrated as the "Spring Festival", and Laba congee became even more popular. In the imperial court, the emperor and nobles gave Laba congee to the officials, servants, and others.
In our home, we love to build bean bowls served in a hand glazed pottery bowl. Start with picking a grain such as quinoa or rice and add a half-cup of cooked or canned beans of your choice, toss some leafy greens on, add sautéed onions, shredded carrot, avocado and mushrooms, then top with feta cheese and pumpkin seeds. Next add your choice of seasonings and dressing such as fresh lemon vinaigrette, balsamic vinegar, ginger miso or chipotle ranch, and dive in! Try out different toppings and combinations each time for new fun flavors. We never tire of these bowls!

My favourite things to nibble at Christmastime, you ask? Abundant cheese boards|cheese balls|cheese cookies; spicy, bold chutneys|mustards|dips; crisp, salty crackers; garlicky, herbalicious mashed potatoes|Brussels sprouts|stuffing; any classic casserole laden with canned soup and crusted in crunchy breakfast cereal.....I LOVE SAVOURY, you dig? So, when it comes to my go-to snack for Christmas cocktail hour, nuts and bolts mix rules supreme. Toasty, crunchy, buttery....alive with the dark, mysterious Worcestershire flavour bomb and hot pepper twang of Tabasco.....and nostalgic with old school spices (garlic/onion powder, celery salt), typically sourced from jars that have been in the cupboard since the 1980s. Sit me in front of a fire, put a glass of wine in my hand and give me a bowl of this, you may never get rid of me.
Lahpet or pickled tea is the most iconic of Burmese foods and unique to the country. It’s eaten in two main ways – as a-hlu lahpet, where the ingredients are served in a beautiful, divided lacquerware dish (aka Mandalay lahpet), and as a salad known as lahpet thoke (aka as Yangon lahpet).Eat as a snack, as a palate-cleanser at the end of a meal or with rice.
