Served with Rice, this stew makes a beautiful accompaniment to any meal.
You could even combine with a beautiful leafy salad and wholemeal pitta bread warmed in a toaster.
For a small pot of this beautiful stew, I used:
2 cups of green mung beans
1/2 tin of coconut milk
1 Tbsp of Turnahpots Hot Jerk ground seasoning (or Hot Jerk seasoning from the cookbook)
1 Tsp Oregano
Salt to taste
Mung beans are quite thirsty and you want to avoid drying them out.
When cooked, I like them to be a little mushy so I cook them until they appear mushy.
Add all seasonings and coconut milk ( DO NOT ADD SALT early! It will make your beans or peas Hard!!)
Allow the stew to cook in the seasonings for another 5-7 minutes.
Have all the other parts of your meals ready (Rice or Pitta Bread and leafy salad)
Now serve this hearty and healthy meal.
