Baby, it’s cold outside! Stay warm with a hearty miso mung bean dahl.
2 cups mung beans
1/2 cup amaranth
4 sliced small carrots
a tablespoon of chickpea miso
a few shakes of turmeric powder
Put it all in a pot. Bring it to a boil, simmer until mung beans and amaranth are soft.
Mung beans have numerous medicinal benefits, including serving as a cure for food poisoning and edema. Also, mung beans alleviate ‘damp-heat’ in the body and are beneficial to the liver and gall bladder (Healing with Whole Foods, Paul Pitchford).
