Mung beans are a legume in the same family as lentils and peas. It has many health benefits including a high source of fiber, protein and antioxidants and originated in India. You can often find it in the legume section of your supermarket, but if you can’t you can always use any kind of lentils instead!
Miso is the elegant Japanese term for fermented soybean paste. When mixed with sweet and spices and cooked it creates a unique but gentle flavor. It lasts forever in your fridge, so if you buy it once, place it in a jar or container and pull it out when needed. You can make this recipe without the paste and it will still be bold and colorful and delicious!
This dressing makes the salad! Make extra and have in your fridge, if you leave the ginger out it will last months in the fridge, if you keep the ginger in, it will last a week!
I know that grilling onions seems like an extra step, but I promise it’s worth it and is so quick! I like to make double the amount and have for future salads, eggs, sandwiches or pastas.
This is a great dish that can be used on its own or as a topping to fish, or chicken, or in a sandwich, or in eggs for breakfast, or as an alternative to tomato sauce!
