Our gorgeous green Mung Beans cook quickly and are delicious in soups, salads and dips. They are also great for sprouting; use mung bean sprouts in salads, wraps and stir-fry dishes. Find instructions for sprouting and recipes for Mung Bean Hummus and Monggo Bean Stew on the package.


Mung beans, also known as mash or moong beans, are a food native to India and have been cultivated for thousands of years as a delicious source of nutrition. Today, they are most popularly known for their wonderful bean sprouts. Whole mung beans have a slightly sweet, nutty flavor and can be cooked on the stovetop like other dried beans.

Mung beans’ nutrition is impressive, and the benefits of mung beans are legion. They’re an excellent source of dietary fiber and offer 12 grams of plant-based proteins per 1/4 cup serving. They’re also a good source of complex carbohydrates and iron, and dry mung beans are packed with vitamins and minerals, including essential amino acids such as lysine. Our dried mung beans are also low in calories, saturated fat and sodium, and are cholesterol free, which can offer health benefits to those on a low-fat diet. For a full nutrition list, click on the Nutritional Information & Ingredients information above.

These tiny green pulses are traditionally used in East Asian and Indian cuisines. Cooked mung beans can be prepared with vegetables, grains and greens in soups, ground into flour for use in flatbreads, mixed with rice, oatmeal or cracked wheat to make khicharee, pureed into a spread for rice or bread or stuffed into pastries to make sweets. Cook mung beans with coconut milk, onion, garlic and ginger to make Monggo Beans, a traditional Filipino-style soup, or simmer them as-is in salted water for 25 minutes for a simple, nutritious side dish.

Mung beans cook fast and are easily digested. Cook our mung beans with spices to prepare soups or curries you can consume as a standalone meal or combine with other foods. Sprouted mung beans are excellent in salads, sandwiches and Asian dishes. Sprouting instructions are included on back of package.

One thing you can’t make from this bag, however, are mung bean noodles, those clear dry noodles made from the starch of mung beans. But we’ve got plenty of other ideas! Click on the recipe tab for some other fun ways on how to cook mung beans.

Which means everything you’ll find here is simple and straightforward, food you’ll be proud to bring to the table.

High quality product, and a wonderful experience.
Everything was sturdy, clean, and fresh. I was able to sprout this grain with no trouble. A wonderful product. I will likely remain a customer for a long time.

Great addition to our meal plan
I never heard of Mung beans until DH found a recipe in men's journal. As a cancer patient I try to bring the healthist of alternatives to our diet. This has been a great addition.

Fiber city + Flavor = WIN
Bluntly put, I have a slow gut, thus seek out lots of fiber beyond just veggies and fruits. Mung beans are one of those foods. The fiber content is crazy high, and the beans are quite tasty. I use in stews as one might any bean, but they are also good cooked to a nice, firm form (al dente, if you like), and then used in salads, sprinkled into stir-fry, or just tossed into some sauteed veggies to give some textural variety, earthy flavor (really nice with mushrooms), and again, that wonderful fiber boost.

These cooked Mung Beans taste so good to me.
I cook them a little differently: first, I soak them in water overnight. I found out that I have to cover them with plenty of water because they absorb a lot! The next morning I rinse them, put them in a pot and add twice as much water as dry mung beans. Then I bring them to a boil, turn down the burner, and simmer them for 30 minutes. They come out perfectly soft and tasty added to a casserole in place of rice or potatoes.

These are apparently very good for you...
These are supposed to be very good for you, especially for women. We sprouted some and ate them on salads, but they weren't our favorite. Not bad, but not a new favorite. We'll have to try them a few other ways, since I bought a whole case of them.

Bernardita N on Sep 27, 2018
I read an article in Consumer Report Health's magazine of the many benefits of beans. And that studies showed eating 4+ meals of beans a week had health benefits. Although this particular bean was not listed, it sounded like an excellent choice to add to my diet and Bob's Red Mill brand has never disappointed!

Love making mung bean soup. Really good for you when you are stressed out. Just 1 cup of beans to 6 cups of water and simmer to a third then add honey to flavor. Growing up, this soup is the "cooling" agent to a a body "heated" with stress.
