(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:)
