Did you know that Mung Beans are full of Protein, B and C Vitamins, Iron, Zinc, Potassium, Magnesium, and many more minerals? Full of fiber and very little cholesterol and supports your immune system… and also your cardiovascular system. Reduces stress and helps maintain a healthy metabolism and also helps detox your body of lots of terrible toxins we have these days. Mung Beans are great with curry and brown rice and many people use that combination as a body cleansing agent.
Mung Beans can also be sprouted or ground into a paste and used in pastries too, in fact there is a Chinese pastry filled with sweet Mung Bean paste that I love… I love Mung Beans and I’m cooking some right now!
