IT’S CHRISTMAS TIME!
I’m pretty pumped about this new food thing I’ve found. I actually want to thank my Sis-In-Law, Amy, for introducing it and sharing some for me to try! So, this is “pasta” that is really beans – and it’s great for all you 24 Day Challengers! Many of us are doing the challenge this time of year to boost our immune system and see to it that we have control going into the holidays. Ok, calm down. I know… beans??? That doesn’t sound so yummy… so that’s why I decided to fall on my sword, try it first, and THEN give an honest assessment of it.
Today I cooked this one. I cooked it like normal pasta, then seasoned with salt and pepper, sprinkled with parmesan cheese and drizzled with olive oil. Kept it simple and I LOVED it! Really really LOVED it! I’m not lying. Nothin’ wrong with this.
It’s made of Mung Beans. I’m sure I’ve eaten them before and just didn’t know it. In all honesty, I really didn’t know what that was, so I googled it. Good stuff!!! Read about it here.
There are other kinds of this “pasta” that I will try out and report back on!
In the mean time, you really should get this food in your pantry ASAP.
