Mung Bean Soup

As I sit here typing this post, the clouds outside are swelling up again. Whether they will rumble and pour rain is a different matter. Even though I mentioned in my last post that I probably wouldn't be seein stormy skies for a while again, it surprised me with another unexpected visit.

I do enjoy the cooler weather- it gives me a small time frame within which me and Maryam can do our outdoor activities. But with this change in weather also comes the abundance of bugs, viruses, nasty colds and poor health. Maryam came down with a fever which then passed on to the rest of the family like falling dominoes. There was no stopping it. What started off as mild quickly escalated into one of the highest temperatures she has ever had. That was followed by a runny nose and sore throat.

And of course I was next in line. I don't know if it's the pregnancy but I find it much harder to recover from any minor coughs or colds at the moment. Being pregnant and sick with a toddler who is also ill is never fun and during times like these, I love a hearty soup that will mend everything.

I have mentioned plenty of times that soup doesn't grace our tables often enough but slowly and surely, I am trying to change that trend. I learnt this particluar soup my my mom BUT my love of mung beans started at my mother in laws house.

She always says 'mug ne pug che' which is a Gujarati saying that literally translates into 'mung beans have legs.' What it means is that mung beans have the necessary nutrients to give you strength, health and vitality. Put you back on your feet, nurse you to health.

And so we've been making this often. Actually, beans are Maryam's favorite meal, always have been. Especially now that she's going through a vegetarian phase. I'm not sure how long it will last, the vegetarian phase as well as the sore throat! I'm hoping both vanish as abruptly as they put in an appearance.

A very interesting soup! That is a great use of mung beans.



Kiri W. said...

Beautiful dish! I love mung beans, and am sick myself. My plan for tonight to recover (I have my Ph.D. defense coming up, my voice better not sound like Darth Vader!) is a soup with shiitake and daikon. :)

LOVE the colors of the soup and that napkin is ADORABLE

Plateful said...

Mung bean's one of my kitchen staples--we make sweet dishes and savory curries with this. Soup sounds interesting.

Shumaila@dubaiveggrowers said...

Looks very hearty Sukaina....we love beans in our family too and that's the one thing the girls are always happy to eat...hope you get better soon!

Heidi @ Food Doodles said...

Aw, being pregnant with a little one and sick all at the same time is awful! I hope you all feel better soon. Your soup looks so beautiful - I love the color. I've had some mung beans in my cupboard for a while now and haven't known what to do with them. I'll try this for sure, I didn't know they got so creamy! Your soup looks delicious!

argone said...

what a lovely soup ! love your pictures :-)

Anh said...

I would never think of using mung bean in soup! Lovely...

Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen said...

Oh no! I knew M was sick but now she's gotten all of you too! I hope you all feel better soon. Eat lots of soup!

Lisa H. said...

Lovely... I would love to try your savoury mung beans soup... I love mung beans :D
I am so use to have sweet mung bean soup that uses coconut milk...
Hope that both M and you are on the road to recovery... :D

Yadsia @ShopCookMake said...

I'm loving the napkin you used! I have some mung beans in the fridge right. Have been wondering what to do with them, now I know.

Marta´s Kitchen said...

How are you feeling???
Never tried mung beans!But by the look of that soup i should ;)

Radhika said...

Lovely way of using up mung beans. Though this is a staple in the pantry never tried a soup out of it. Your clicks and the simple recipe tempts me a lot.

SewTrashy said...

I assume this is one serving? Am making this tomorrow for lunch!

Thanks for the well wishes everyone. Maryam is her happy bouncy self again. I still have a slight scratchy throat but I'm sure it will pass soon.

Sew Trashy- I have amended the recipe card to show that this will serve 2 people.


Kalpana Sareesh said...

very inte n awesome filling soup.. ;love the wonderful clicks..

sliceofmylyfe said...

Gosh, I would have never guessed you guys spoke Gujarati at home. Then you should have had asafoetida because Gujaratis cannot do without hing at home.

Hope you all recover soon.

Zee said...

A good way to put beans and lentils on the dinner table which usually don't get enough attention :)

Zita said...

I love this kind of soup! I'm a soup lover!

I love the new style with the colors. Great work! :)

Priya said...

Protein packed soup definitely..

MyFudo™ said...

Oh, I hope you get well very soon... I know your mung soup will get you back on your feet. When I was pregnant and I didn't feel good, my mother in law would dice ginger, garlic and onion and mix them with honey and make me drink a spoonful. I hated the taste but it really worked everytime. I guess the antibiotic effects of these foodstuff really work.
I would love to make this mung soup for my little toddler too...she does not feel that well, probably due to the weather. Thanks for the post!

Laurie {Simply Scratch} said...

This sounds delicious! Such a pretty soup!

kiwsparks said...

Mung beans were always only a source of sprouts when I was growing up, so this would be a wonderful way to catch more of the full nutrient value AND have a delicious soup! I shall have to try it.

Kiran @ said...

I hope you and the toddler feel better soon!

I love mung ki dhal and this soup looks so drool-worthy :)

Sally - My Custard Pie said...

I've only sprouted mung beans, never had them in a soup but will definitely try it. Sorry to hear you were all under the weather.

Terra said...

I bought Mung beans, and then never knew what to do with them. Love the simplicity of this recipe, yet so beautiful:-) Take care, Terra said...

You all must have gotten the same storm front as us. Anyway, I love this soup is so beautiful in its simplicity. It goes to prove that when you have nice ingredients, you don't need a whole lot for a dish to shine!

Anonymous said...

beautiful recipe!!! the different fonts made me smile. i'm on tastespotting daily (and have been for years!) and this is the loveliest-looking written recipe i've seen-

Kulsum@journeykitchen said...

Wow I must have missed this. I love love mung beans and any soups that involve beans in general. Beautiful!

Anonymous said...

This soup was absolutely wonderful! And so easy...thanks :)

raquel said...

we usually make our mung bean soup saute with onion and garlic with ground port...but I also wanna try this I know it is fantastic.

Ryan said...

That looks really good. It's alot like lentil soup.

Suzi said...

This looks delicious. I have never eaten mung beans cooked but I have sprouted them. I bet this tastes amazing. New to your site just saw this on Foodbuzz. Nice to meet you!

Anonymous said...

I'm using cilantro leaves here as the garnish and not coriander. (Even though in some locations/languages, the two words might be used to refer to the same thing!)

Beatrix Quills said...

Hi, I know this is SO long after the original post, but could you make this soup with fresh mung beans instead of dried? I've never cooked with mung beans before...

I personally used a few of the above mentioned methods
for my own pets which worked for me and may not be correct for everyone else to
use for house training their pets. Teach him it's OK to bite on his toys, but not a human hand or foot. When you are both comfortable with the basics, you might want to teach your new friend some tricks. This is not a cruel punishment but a way to keep socks, shoes and table legs free of teeth marks.

Well, if you're someone who wouldn't would like to
reach a compromise the caliber of your tribal sleeve art
tattoos, then you definately should stay away from free
tattoo designs all together. Six are dingbat fonts that have a large number of items of tattoo-appropriate
artwork, for example hearts, skulls, animals like dragons and scorpions, fantasy art, and tribal and Celtic symbols.

Without doubt, oahu may be the inventiveness as well as the appearance inside tribal skin icon patterns who've delivered this in fashion. He could be the guy who thinks that they was created under an unlucky star. It would be a common to find weapons of war being tattooed upon men.
