Welcome to the world of Mung Beans.
Mung Beans are green on the outside and yellow on the inside and are cultivated in Australia, Burma, Peru and Thailand and on a small scale in Sri Lanka and the Philippines.
Naturally, there are hundreds of recipes related to this variety of beans.
YouTube has endless ways of cooking the Mung Beans, including how to germinate them into Mung Beans Sprouts (which will be discussed separately), and methods of extracting the starch in the beans to make desserts and jellies.
Mung Beans are popular in Asian cuisine, i.e. Japan, China, Korea, Burma, Sri Lanka, Philippines, India, Pakistan, Indonesia, Cambodia and Vietnam. In fact, it is the main dish in most of these countries.

There are differences in the preference to the size of the Mung Beans.
In this category, the responsibility of Goudas Foods is to ensure that the beans are clean (to the best of our ability), uniform in size, slightly polished, and with no skin defects.
As you become familiar with the taste of the Mung Beans, and assuming you like it, you will find yourself experimenting with the different ways of preparing them.
Mung Beans may eventually become part of your weekly diet.
As a subject, the Mung Bean category is endless with respect to preparation and consumption depending upon the countries and nationalities that favour them.
As I am writing this small article, I realize that I am 70 years young and I have all the experience in the world in the food business and obviously by reading this you are familiar with my recipes, which include foods and preperation from countries around the world.
You may have read somewhere within my biography titled, The Immigrant, or my book, Miracles Still Do Happen, that I am a work-a-holic and I have utilized all my years in doing or producing something, including on weekends and holidays. For example, I wrote the Mango Tree book on New Year's Day 2012.
My things-to-do list is unlimited, in spite of the fact that my time is limited.
Therefore, I suggest that should you have a recipe for Mung Beans or any other subject, submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org along with a photo of the final outcome.

Should you not know about Malaguaya and Salaguaya, read my book titled, THE LIMA BEANS, which includes the story of The Olympics Opening Ceremonies in Salaguaya in the year 2148 which will not only be the year of the Olympics, but, according to my predictions, should be a great year for wine production in gips, that is, Greece, Italy, Portugal and Spain.
Please do not laugh, this is a very, very serious matter and I would like to see your submission, the sooner, the better.
Just imagine, your name and recipe would become a part of the greatest Recipe Website in the whole, wide world. You know the www world.
