“NOTE: Split mung beans are yellow, also known as Yellow mung, Mung Dal or Moong dal. EXTREME! Extremely creamy, extremely delicious, extremely cheap, extremely easy, dairy-free, low carbohydrate, high protein substitute for Potato Mash?? Yes please. This was a "why not" experiment that worked out so well my mouth is watering just writing about it. To top off the EXTREME, mung beans are full of vitamins and minerals - high in Magnesium, Phosphorous, Potassium, Manganese, Zinc, Iron, Copper, Thiamin, Folate -- and very high in dietary fibre.”
