Well, with all the Christmas recipes that I am currently making and testing, such a healthy Soup in between a true miracle. To my surprise, I never thought that mung dal could taste so delicious. In the process, I just started experimenting and this is what came out. So who in between times a little time out from Cookies , Cake , Roast and co. is exactly right here.
Delicious mung dal soup
Mung Dal, so delicious and so underrated! Originally, a reader brought it to my attention and asked if I could do something with mung beans. No sooner said than done, the yellow beans promptly landed in my shopping cart.
Mung Dal is actually in the ayurvedic Kitchen at home and can be used very versatile. You have the agony of choice between a creamy Dal to Rice or vegetable. In Ayurveda, Mung Dal is suitable for all doshas, i.e. Pitta, Vata and Kapha. The classic version uses Ayurvedic spices such as asafoetida, pippali and fenugreek. Unfortunately, I did not have all this in the house and just made a delicious soup out of it. If you want to know more about Ayurveda, I recommend the following. Book “Like Newborn…” which I found very informative: https://amzn.to/2RpQfNX
What goes into it? A little oil (can be omitted), cumin, turmeric, coriander, nutmeg, cardamom, cloves, rosemary, onion, carrots, celery, ginger, mung dal lentils, salt, pepper, vegetable broth and a dash of Vegetable cream (optional).
TIP: I also like to use sesame oil for roasting, which warms in the cold season!
How healthy are mong beans in soup?
Mung beans are often totally underestimated Kitchen often totally underestimated, but they are an extremely good source of vegetable protein:
- 24g protein on 100g
- Rich in essential amino acids
- Rich in Minerals such as magnesium, iron and zinc
- Rich in Dietary fiber
- Included Vitamin A, B, C and E
TIP: Mung beans half and peeled do not need to be soaked for long before processing. It is enough to rinse them briefly under water just before use.
If you Soup during the cold season, then I recommend you my Cold tonic for this.
