This dish is an old favourite of mine, it’s one of the comfort foods I could eat while recovering from digestive issues, that didn’t cause me pain. It’s warm, comforting and so gentle on your stomach – use de-hulled bean if you have acute digestive problems.

?Mung beans give a boost to your immunity accompanied by a general feeling of wellbeing and vitality.

?Emotional stress, environmental toxins, seasonal changes, illnesses, travel and overworking, can all leave your digestion in a weakened state – a bowl of Mung bean broth will strengthen your digestion and rekindle your metabolism.

?Mung bean are also a great food to support your body’s detoxification processes – they contain soluble and insoluble fibres. These literally scrape your colon clean of mucus, toxins and parasites. So if you are experiencing bloating, have irregular bowel movements or a white coating on your tongue, or feel tired and lethargic, make this simple mung bean soup.

?You could also carry out a mung bean soup detox one day a week to benefit from increased energy, improved metabolism, regular and healthy bowel movements and reduced signs of constipation.

?This bowlful of satisfaction is just sooooo good for a weakened digestion, it’s the vegetarian equivalent of your grans chicken soup.

?Mung beans absorb flavours so you can take this soup in different taste directions.

?Mung beans contain vitamins A, C and E, folacin, phosphorous, magnesium, iron and calcium.

?It’s grey and cold here in my part of the U.K. so I fancied a bowl of simple comfort. I just cooked up some soaked mung bean with lots of water so they became completely broken down, then added ghee, freshly squeezed lemon and lemon zest, rock salt, and freshly chopped cilantro (if you have soaked your beans use about 6:1 ration water to bean to get a really well cooked brothy soup).
