Mung beans are one of the most cherished foods in ayurveda, a wholistic system of medicine from India. Mung beans are very nourishing, while being relatively easy to digest. People who are recuperating from illnesses are often recommended a combination of rice and mung beans, because they are very nutritious but not hard to digest.

Here's a delicious way to get more protein in your diet!
