Mung beans are magical. They are a super nutrient dense legume, and have been used in Ayurvedics (ancient holistic medicine) for thousands of years. They are full of all the good stuff like folate, magnesium, potassium, B6 and are also packed with fiber. Unlike some other beans, soaking the mung beans overnight and cooking them with these spices makes them really easy to digest. They are a winter staple for me, but I’ll also be picking up sprouted mung beans at the farmers market for salads and avocado toasts as soon as spring arrives!
