Monggo Beans

It has been quite a while since I posted any recipes, but here’s one that I wanted to share! I have been working through my pantry, trying to use up ingredients that have been sitting around too long.

One of those ingredients was dried mung beans. Since I also had coconut milk in the pantry, the recipe that jumped out at me was a Filipino recipe of mung beans with coconut milk, garlic and ginger. It was easy and delicious, not at all spicy but a tasty flavor combination.
