This is one delicious sweet soup I discovered by accident. I was planning to cook some red bean soup with orange peels. And then I remembered my mom used to add a handful of white glutinous rice with hers. Some people added some dried longan too. But I did not want the dried longan in my sweet soup and while trying to take out my shell pasta to cook noodle soup, I spotted my black glutinous rice. I was thinking why not I used the black glutinous rice instead of white since it was considered to be healthier. So, I used the black glutinous rice along with my red beans and dried orange peels and set my slow cooker to low and was really surprised at how tasty it was the next day. It was so delicious that I would cook this way often from now on.
I love to cook red beans and black glutinous rice in my slow cooker overnight, because I will be rewarded with a soft and gluey and delicious sweet soup in the morning, without fail. I liked mine soupy thus I added a lot more water.
