Rice & beans

Yield: 4 Or provide

Measure Ingredient
¾ cup Mung beans
Water
¼ cup Rice
Water
6 tablespoons Sugar
Water

Soak beans in water for 5 hours. Get rid of green skins, if any, that float to the surface; you might encourage then to come off by rubbing the beans between your hands; drain. Rinse rice three times in water; drain. Put rice and beans in a pot. Add 4 c water and bring to a boil for 1 minute; then lower the heat, and let simmer for 1 hr. Add sugar to taste (the 6 T called for might not be enough for Western tastes).

Stir, ladle into soup bowls, and serve warm.
