Mung Beans Soup Recipe

Archeological evidence suggests that mung beans (Vigna radiata) were domesticated in India as early as 1500 BC before spreading throughout Asia and finally to the United States.1 Their medicinal properties, such as protection against heat stroke, and high nutritional content have been valued for centuries. These tiny, oval-shaped beans are available in several forms, with the peeled spilt version popular in Indian dishes, and the processed version of bean sprouts and starch noodles more common in Asian cuisine. Although mung beans have been cultivated in America since the 1830s, 75% of the 15-20 million pounds of mung beans consumed in the US each year are imported. ( )

The expression “good things come in small packages” certainly holds true for mung beans. With its dense phenol content and broad array of nutrients, the mung bean forges an impressive defense against several chronic, age-related diseases including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, and obesity.
