Mung Beans – Appetizer To Dessert

Non-stop rains this week stranded many commuters and kept many home from schools and offices which suspended operations due to floods caused by a combination of heavy downpours, release of water from dams and an unusually high tide.
Unable to go to market, housewives have to turn to non-perishables in the pantry to make meals for the family. Some of the most popular dishes during the rainy season are dried fish, sardines and soupy stews based on mung beans, a most versatile legume that Filipinos use in appetizers, main courses, merienda and desserts.
