Green Mung Beans
Mung Beans are tiny, tender beans that taste slightly sweet and are fantastically simple to use because they can be cooked easily without soaking. The mung bean is also known as green gram or golden gram and is mainly cultivated on the Indian subcontinent. They range in colour from green to yellow to black. They can be sprouted and used as a microgreen or cooked like a regular bean and incorporated into a hearty main dish.
Mung beans are also a tasty, healthy staple for soups and stews. Sometimes called the ‘Food of the Angels’, they are an easily assimilated form of protein and a marvellous base for a good, cleansing diet during the winter months.
