Mung Beans

(Mung Beans)  Mung beans are among the smallest of beans.  They are quite common in Asia, but are not usually sold in supermarkets in the United States.  We purchase our mung beans from our coop, a health food store, or from a specialty food store.  Sprouted mung beans are a common ingredient in many Chinese recipes.  Mung beans are also used to make cellophane noodles.  Whole mung beans can also be used in soup and other recipes.  The actual size of the mung beans can be seen in the photo of the cup to the left.  See the nutritional charts below for raw and cooked mung beans.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-38)
