wow. this brings back memories of my lolo's cooking. this was his ultimate comfort food specialty. he never used prawns but he added slices of ginger and/or ampalaya. i think the prawns make a wonderful complement.
This was completely unknown as I bought some organic mung beans on sale and had no idea what they were. This got thrown together pretty much exactly following the recipe (minus the prawns I'm allergic) and I was blown away. I made a HUGE batch and it was one of the FEW dishes that I wasn't SICK OF by the time it was gone. I would say it was even better the second day after letting the flavors blend overnight in the fridge. Will DEFINITELY make this again!
Om my gosh - excellent! I've never cooked mung beans before always just sprouted them. I had no idea how delicious they are - they look like lentils when cooked but taste like black eye peas. I used vegetable broth rather than chicken broth but otherwise followed recipe. May be one of my new favorite soups!
I know this is called mung bean soup but I'm not convinced the mung beans actually add anything substantial certainly not taste. I also tried the rice as some suggested but think it does better as a soup. Besides that I added fresh ginger a splash of white wine in with the garlic and onions and a pinch of red chili pepper. I tried adding ONE anchovy before simmering but actually think it could do with two (ended up adding a few drops of fish sauce as well). Shrimp and spinach should be added at the last minute. LOVELY recipe! Very flavourful. I'll be making this again. Curious to try it with vermicelli noodles but I'm convinced it works better as a soup.
