    1 Cup Mung Beans
    1 Large White/Yellow Onion
    4-8 Cloves of Garlic
    2 Medium Carrots
    2 Fresh Organic Tomatoes or 1 cup Organic (preservative & additive free) Canned Crushed tomatoes/Chunky tomato sauce
    1tbsp powder or 1/2 cube of vegetable bouillon
    1/2-1 tbsp of each cumin, coriander, paprika
    4-6 bay leaves
    Salt, pepper, lime/lemon juice to taste


I use all organic pesticide free and allergen/preservative/ additive/artificial color free foods

* Soak 1 cup of dried mung beans over night or in boiled hot water for 2-4 hours (until they have expanded) then rinse and drain

* Fill half of a medium soup pot with filtered water, add 2 teaspoons or a cube of vegetable bouillon (check ingredients for allergens like wheat, gluten, soy, corn etc…) ½ - 1 tablespoon of ground cumin, ½ - 1 tablespoon of ground coriander, ¼ - ¾ tablespoon ground paprika (despite it’s name this spice is not hot) 4-6 bay leaves & ground black pepper to taste

* Wash two carrots thoroughly, halve and chop. Peel and wing 1 big white or yellow onion. Crush and finely chop 4-8 cloves of garlic (depending on your tolerance of cooked garlic)

* Put all chopped carrots, onion and garlic into pot where your broth is boiling, turn to medium heat and let simmer for 10-15mins before adding the mung beans. Let cook for 20mins

* Stirring occasionally, add 1 cup of the canned chunky tomato sauce, canned crushed tomatoes or fresh chopped tomatoes towards the end when beans are soft, but not mushy (cook tomatoes no longer than 10mins)

* Add salt and lime/lemon after done cooking preferably adding to each individual bowl to taste not the pot.


* You can also add a little cold pressed virgin olive oil to your bowl/plate (Do not cook with or heat the oil and lime/lemon juice)
