Did you know that Mung bean is the most balanced legume?!… And if you prepare it correctly, it won’t cause gas and bloating?!
Not only it won’t aggravate Vata, but also it will calm down Rakta and Kapha?!
Soak them over night; drain its water a couple of times; cook it with appropriate oils (such as ghee, coconut oil or olive oil) and heating spices (such as fennel, turmeric, cardamom, cinnamon, cumin, fresh ginger, oregano, rosemary, saffron, nutmeg, etc.)
Of course it would be much better if you use mung bean sprouts instead of mung beans! The mung bean sprouts are more Sattvic and easier to digest!
And an other important thing is that it is much easier to digest mung beans in soups and stews! The water quality of soups and stews reduces the dryness of mung beans and make them more digestible!
