Mung Beans in Coconut Milk Recipe (Ginatang Monggo)

One of the best thing when you are living in the province is you can get things for free, it is either from your own garden or from neighbor’s backyard. The other day we decided to cook monggo beans or mung beans in coconut milk, we had two head of coconuts from a neighbor.  Mung beans is a high source of protein, fiber, antioxidants and phytonutrients and  have some huge health benefits to offer, including helping to lower high cholesterol levels and protect against heart disease.

Sauteed Monggo Beans

As it was first time for my husband to see me cooking sauteed monggo, he was so in patient waiting when I am going to finished cooking. He is not concerned about the tasting the food but he is more concerned of the gas bill. Lol!

After boiling the monggo beans I saute garlic and onion and fry the pork with it. When the pork is already brown I add the monggo beans and the slop, I add more water and salt to taste. I let it boil for few minutes and I add the lettuce and let it cook for few minutes.
