Ginisang Monggo Recipe


Ginisang Monggo

(Mung Bean Soup)



 This is the dish I love growing up, my family grown Mung Beans and when its harvest time, Guess what for dinner? Ginisang Monggo ( Mung Bean Soup with all kinds of season vegetables) I admit I'm not a big vegetable fun when I was a kid, but since my parent are farmers, I don't have much choice other than eat whats on the table, mostly vegetables ( hehehe ). 
Now that I'm far away from home, I terribly missed this dish and little inspired also, Since it's My Mama's favorite!
 This coming Mother's Day, I offer this Ginisang Monggo in honor of my Mama back home. This is also her favorite dish and she always made this once or twice a week. It's like, a way of saying " Thank You" for being such a wonderful Mama and for everything that you thought me in life. I love you!
 I also love to utilize Mung beans by using it on bread like Monggo Bread and spanish roll filling. Below is my own Ginisang Monggo Recipe, you can totally make it your own. Enjoy cooking:)

NOTE: Add any vegetables on hand. You can also totally rock this dish by putting some coconut milk.
Ingredients:
1/2 Cup Mung bean
1 eggplant
1/4 of whole cabbage/ bokchoy/spinach
1  Bell pepper
Onion 
Garlic
Tomato
Ground beef- ( meat of your choice)
Oil
Water
Ginger
 Salt and Pepper- to taste

Directions:
1.) Throw the mung beans in large pot, boil it for like 45 minutes to an hour, until it cook. Set aside.
2.) Put oil in other pan, sauteed the garlic, onion and ginger. Add the ground beef and let it brown.
3.) Add the cooked mung beans and chopped vegetables and let it simmer until everything is cook.
4.) Salt and Pepper and simmer for another 5 minutes.
5.) Serve HOT with rice. ENJOY~


Happy Mother's Day to all Mommies out-there!!

  6. Wow, ginisang monggo is one of my favorite dishes! At first, I thought molo wrappers yung nasa photo; akala ko monggo ala dumplings. That would have been a different take. :D

  7. I think we should try this. Simple lang ang monggo dishes namin parati eh. Only with malunggay or ampalaya leaves. Keri din pala ang eggplant and tomatoes.

  16. The only way I know how to cook monggo is to add in tinapa, kamatis and dahon ng ampalaya. I didn't know it could be used with other veggies too. My mom used to cook it as a sweet snack. :-)
