Meatless Brown Rice Mixed Beans Zhongzi @ 无肉糙米豆豆粽子

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Here’s my all time favourite zhongzi 粽子.  I always love my zhongzi loaded with beans and this round made something slightly healthy. Less glutinous rice which is tummy friendly for some elderly. I made with 50% of brown rice and 50% of glutinous rice or maybe you may use Japanese rice @Calrose rice. This zhongzi is very well received by friends who had tried it cause it tastes a bit like 5 grain rice. Still I love the beans ….. haha…. Please read on for more.

Ingredients for fillings :

250gm  mushroom, soaked till expand

80gm   dried shrimps, soaked for 30 minutes

1 TB garlic chopped

1 shallots, chopped

4 TB  oyster sauce

3 TB  light soy sauce

2 tspn  pepper powder

1 tspn  vegetarian granules

1 cup water

*Thickening : 2 tspn  cornflour mixed 2 TB water

Method :
(1)    Drain off soaked dried shrimps and set aside then drain off mushroom and slice into chunks.
(2)    preheat wok with 5 TB cooking oil, fry shrimp till fragrant then stir in chopped garlic & shallots and continue saute till fragrant.
(3)    Now, add in mushroom and stir fry for 5 minutes, then add in the remaining ingredients and continue cooking till water almost dry off. Finally, add in thickening and cook till thickened. Best to prepare the fillings the night before and keep chilled before use.
Ingredients :

500gm  Brown Rice, soaked for 2 hours

500gm  glutinous rice, soaked overnight

250gm  red beans, soaked overnight

150gm  black eye peas, soaked overnight

3 tspn  five spice powder

5 tspn  salt

1 tspn  vegetarian granule

2 tspn  pepper powder

60 pcs  bamboo leaves

A bunch of straws

15 salted egg yolk, cut into half

1 TB  garlic chopped

1 shallots, chopped

2/3 cup cooking oil

Method :
(1)    Drain off both rice and all the beans. However, I didn’t soak the red beans but cooked it with pressure cooker for 10 minutes the night before instead and then keep chilled.
(2)    Preheat wok with cooking oil, saute garlic & shallot till fragrant then add in both rice, 5 spice powder, pepper powder, salt & vegetarian granule. Cook till fragrant and stir till well cooperated. Finally, add in both beans and continue stirring for another 5 minutes or till everything looks dry and nice.
(3)    For bamboo leaf & straws, you may either soaked it night before or boil it instantly to soften it.
(4)    Now, wrapped rice, ½ salted egg yolk, one tablespoon of mushroom fillings and then cover it with extra rice mixture. Then nicely sealed.
(5)    Finally, cook for 40 minutes by using pressure cooker or at gas cooker for 1-1/2 to 2 hours.
