We've tried Mung Beans for the first time yesterday. I decided to make Mung Bean Vegetable Soup. It looks like Pea Soup but has a slightly different taste. They are high in protein, higher than alot of other beans. Also, high in iron and fiber as are most beans.
I simmered this soup for about 45 minutes and the Mung Beans were softened. I thought it would take longer to cook. If you like Pea Soup, you'll like Mung Bean Soup.
