How to use
Although mung beans due to their size don’t necessarily need soaking to cook we would recommend to do it in order to remove flatulence-causing compounds and make them easier to digest. You can soak mung beans in plenty of cold water (in a large bowl with room for beans to double in size) for 8-12 before cooking. Then discard that water and cook your beans in fresh cold water.
To cook mung beans on the stovetop, place in a pot and cover with plenty of water (one part beans to three parts water). Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until the beans are tender.
