Do you know Monggo?

Germany
May 8, 2021 3:29am CST
Hello Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening to all my dear mylotters I woke up in a sunny and cold weather. It is great. I can finally have a good walk later and enjoy the bright sun shining Today, I like to prepare this simple and tasty kind of soup ``Monggo``. I don`t know if you know this beans. First you have to boil it for long time until it is soft. After that, you set it aside and fry some minced garlic, onion and any meat you like but me I like it with ground beef. You can also include tomatoes but I don`t like it but my mom love to include it with her Monggo style. Then, you can mix together with some spinach or kangkong(water spinach) or malunggay (moringa) leaves. Let it boil for a minute and enjoy it with steamed rice How about you my dear mylotters? Do you know Monggo? How do you cook it? What are you having for today? I hope you can share it with me here Have a great day and Happy mylotting Photo: google

@jobelbojel Oh ok. That`s really a problem. I also cook little of it. I made 1 cup of monggo and just add 1/4 kilo of ground beef. That is good for 2 persons

"kangkong or malunggay leaves" --- I wonder how many myLotters who don't come from your country know what that is.

Kangkong is water spinach and malunggay are leaves from the Moringa tree. I don't know if these ever grow to your place but these are green leafy vegetable we usually add to sauteed and soup dishes for added nutrients.
