How to Make Moringa, Mushroom, and Mung Bean Soup
Moringa is a native tree to tropical and subtropical of South Asia countries. It is considered a superfood as it contains lots of minerals, vitamins, and other essential nutrients. Mushroom is a fungus grown above the ground on the soil. There are so many varieties of edible and poisonous mushrooms. It contains vitamin D. Mung Bean is a plant belonging in the legume family. This bean is mostly cultivated in Asian countries.
I came up with a healthy recipe combining these three nutritious ingredients. Let me show you how to make moringa, mushroom, and mung bean soup. I flavored this soup with fish sauce or a fish fermented in salt.
