a reply to: southbeach Your versions sound so good with the meats in it! Yummm!
One dollar for about two pounds! (I had to look up the conversion.) That is a super good deal!
Thank you for sharing.😊

Peace love and mungbeans to you all.

I love mungbeans sprouts, we eat a lot in or on our curry.

My husband is from Indonesia and his mum use to make this recipe for when he was sick or she was to poor to cook something else.

Boil up mungbeans in a mexture of water and coconut cream with fresh ginger banana and Kumara or what you might call sweet potatoe and then add sugar or honey to your sweet toothsome likening. It's a bit like soup and can be eaten hot or cold, for pudding or breakfast. Sometimes we freeze it into iceblock so for the kids and our cat even like to eat it.
Bean pulses and nuts are more nutritious when starting to sprout, they don't have to sprout as much as the photo in a previous post but socked over night is good.

Happy eating everyone.

They also sell what they call Black Mung beans on the market which i bought but they are not recommended,even if you soak them for a couple of days and then boil them for an hour they are still hard.

Ever try to grow your own mung bean sprouts?

I can't get them in the stores around me, so I grow my own. This was the YouTube vid that turned me onto it!




I can't believe you watch Maangchi, i have some of her Youtube videos under my favorites.
She taught me how to make Kim chi stew.
I will definitely watch that video.

I am actually British and an American citizen(dual).
I am living in Dumaguete at the moment though in Negros Oriental.
Where did you go in the South?
If you come here again try Beef Randang(spicy) a Muslim dish from Mindanao in a category of food name Maranao.
I'm gonna ask the locals for some more Mung recipes and put them on here if i get any.

a reply to: peppycatMy first mung bean dish was from my wife, a Filipina, and it has been one of my favorites.

However mine is a little meatier, as well as fish or snail we will use beef, chicken or pork too,(small slices) but the rest of the recipe is pretty much the same except the cumin.

We don't use Oyster sauce but we do use home made soy sauce because it has naturally occurring amino acids (that's right Bragg's liquid amino acid is nothing but soy sauce). If you make your own soy sauce it is better than the store bought. If you don't have time just look for soy sauce without any whey or wheat, artificial colors or flavours added (generally china town has some). Sometimes you can find it with nothing more than caramel coloring that is better than the regular store bought.

I lived in Palawan for over 15 years

Yep that happened to me but with the dog. I got used to it and have eaten dog a few times.

Also the leg of the monitor lizard taste like dark meat turkey it is really good.

Sea snails, fish and even a certain type of worm found in the mangrove all native foods.

Don't knock it till you tried it.

You should try the mung bean based noodles. You can find them at almost every ching chong market and it is fairly cheap. Loaded with fiber (when compared to other noodles) and the texture holds up in most dishes (always tasted al dente to me, which I like)

I do love the mung beans by themselves too. My wife cooks them up to a point of perfection...and no oyster sauce. I shall ask her for the recipe. I believe it contains no animal products from what I know.
