Mung Bean Stew with Poblanos and Tomatillos

Mung beans are from India but we bring a Mexican flare for a unique dish. Just 1 cup of mung beans has 14g of protein and 15g of fiber. A good source of magnesium and folate but what makes these beans stand out is how easy they are to digest. Of all the beans in the world, mung beans are the easiest to digest which is why in India, kichadi (a dish with equal parts split mung beans and white rice) is considered baby food and is a key food in Ayurveda for its healing qualities. Be sure to soak your mung beans overnight to reduce cooking time and make them even easier to digest.
