I’ve said before that I don’t like red bean desserts. There’s something off-putting about the texture to me. When I saw these red bean spring rolls at the supermarket, however, I was a bit confused as to whether these were sweet or savory. I decided to try them anyway.
The bean filling was very thoroughly mashed, like refried beans, and didn’t have that weird texture it can sometimes have in desserts. It wasn’t sweet, so far all I know it could have been filled with any type of bean. It all tasted a little bland, but worse was that it was quite dry to eat. It could have done with a sauce. I just don’t know if it’s caramel or chili sauce that it needs.
