A "Mung bean" Pancake Breakfast
So yesterday we discovered the wonders of "mung bean" and how it can control inflammation in the body that's the cause of everything from arthritis to heart disease, Alzheimer's, diabetes, cancer . . . and more.
Today . . . I'll give you one of my recipes for this "miracle" of beans. And then we'll continue with who and how "mung bean" partners up with, for an incredible "duo of healing".
I know breakfast is one of the hardest meals to get right, so I figured I'd give you a recipe for that meal. And when we're done with this topic of keeping the "immune system" healthy . . . we'll move on to learning how to eat correctly and lose some unwanted pounds. But we've got a lot to learn before then.
Okay . . . so the night before, I bring to a boil 3 cups of water and 1 cup of "Mung dal or moong dal" (remember "dal" means split). This recipes is good with the split opposed to the whole. Whole is good for soups and whole green mung bean takes a little longer to cook . . .
Now, once the water comes to a rolling boil . . . I reduce the heat to a simmer and cover for 30 minutes or until the beans are soft. At this point, it will look like the consistency of oatmeal if you're using the split.
Set aside and let cool, then refrigerate over night.
In the morning you're ready for pancakes.
Now, in a small mixing bowl . . . mix a 1/2 cup of the cooked mung dal bean with 1 organic cage-free egg. Mix well together.
Next add a dash of ground turmeric, ginger, garlic, black pepper and onion to your mixture. (No salt if possible, due to that being inflammatory). Then pour in a skillet to cook just like a pancake.
Okay . . . so what did I accomplish by making this yummy breakfast you see in this picture???
Well . . . the egg provided me with protein and potassium, and the mung bean induced production of "anti-inflammatory" cytokines. The tomatoes are another anti-inflammatory, the grapes are for correcting stomach acid, avocados for heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids and the yacon syrup for a natural sweetener that contains fructooligsaccharides and insulin which are prebiotics. All sprinkled with a parsley garnish for a liver cleanse.
