Yokan is a lightly sweetened dessert made of red beans, sugar, and agar (a type of gelatin). The dish originated in China where it was made from boiled sheep gelatin, but as it was introduced to Japan by the Zen Buddhists (whose practice forbids the eating of animals) red beans were instead substituted. Typically, it is sold in blocks and served sliced. Fancier varieties of Yokan are commonly given as a gift, much like fruit cake.Many different variations of Yokan exist. Mizu (water) yokan is typically made with more water than normal and can be served chilled as a summer dessert. Though mainly made with red beans, one variety shiro (white) yokan is made with kidney beans resulting in a whitish color and milder flavor to which is commonly added green tea powder. Yokan may also be filled with sweet potato, figs, persimmons, sweetened whole azuki beans, or chestnuts. Honey, brown sugar, molasses, and even salt may be used as a flavoring instead of sugar to alter the yokan's flavor.
