  • ½ Cup of Carrots, Shredded
  • ½ Cup Cucumber, Diced

Cooking Gadgets Needed:

Directions:

  1. Cook the mung beans by bringing 5 ½ cups of vegetable broth to a boil in a large pot or saucepan. 
  2. While waiting for the broth to boil prepare the other ingredients. 
  3. Pour in 2 ¾ cup of dry mung beans (found in the Mother’s Market dry bulk section); once the broth is boiling, reduce heat and cover for 15-20 min. 
  4. Mung beans should not be mushy, so check on them periodically to ensure they are not overcooked. 
  5. Drain the mung beans and put aside. Note: you can pour cold water on them to stop the cooking process quickly and then drain the cool water. 
  6. In a large bowl, place all of the ingredients and mix thoroughly. 
  7. Taste the mixture and add any additional flavoring needed. 
This recipe is a plant-based protein packed dish for the family BBQ and beyond.
