I believe in the powers of mung beans. This kind of legumes is pack of protein, fiber and more. One of the meals I wean my child to is boiled mung beans. Maybe this is the reason why he is small but heavy for this size, which surprised the health visitor who visited us. But now he only eats it as part of ice lolly.
This kind of green beans is also called mongo or mungo bean in Asia. Some people like mung bean as snack with sugar after cooled from boiled. It could be cook further by sauteing it with garlic, onion and flavor it with chicken cubes, or hebi (dried shrimp) to serve as viand to go with rice. Chinese people make delicious moon cake out of it. My favorite is my mother’s simple way of making ice lollies.
