Mung Bean Stew with Gram Flour Flatbread & Gomashio

I found a stray and somewhat unloved pack of mung beans at the back of the cupboard and decided to make a wholesome and hearty stew. The love the nutty texture, especially when combined with a creamy garlic coconut dip, crunchy/salty sesame seed gomashio and of course some flatbreads to scoop it up. Seriously good.

Its a perfect warming bowl of nutritious beans, all made from store cupboard ingredients. Serve with your choice of flatbreads, chunky sourdough or salad.

I really hope you enjoy, much love Niki xxx

I'd love to know if you made this recipe.
