Ingredients

  • ½ cup raw mung beans

  • 5 potatoes, peeled and quartered

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped

  • 2 carrots, sliced

  • 2 stalks celery, sliced

  • 5 button mushrooms, sliced

  • 2 cups vegetable stock

  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Place the mung beans in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, and cook for 10 minutes. Lower heat to medium, and simmer until soft, about 10 minutes. Drain beans into a strainer and rinse under cold water. Set aside.

  3. Meanwhile, place the potatoes in saucepan, cover with water, and stir in 1/4 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, and cook just until potatoes begin to soften when pierced with a fork, about 10 minutes. Drain, and set aside.

  4. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion; cook and stir until transparent, about 5 minutes. Add the carrots, celery, and mushrooms. Cook and stir until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Pour in the stock, and add salt and pepper to taste. Cook vegetable mixture 5 minutes more. Combine with the mung beans and potatoes in an oven-proof casserole. Cover with a lid.

  5. Bake in preheated oven until mixture bubbles, about 30 minutes.
