Vegetarian Finger Food Idea – Mung Bean Fritters
August 16, 2013
I just met the mung bean and I think I like him. I am happy to introduce him to my vegetarian friends who are visiting this weekend (although I suspect they will probably have already met!) Previously I have stressed about what to cook for vegetarian visitors but these days I am excited about coming up with new dishes and discovering new ingredients.
I recall my mum sprouting bean shoots of some description on the window sill in the kitchen when I was growing up. She did it non stop for a period of time until we all got sick of them. The flavor of these patties recalled that memory so she must have had mung beans amongst them.
This dish is inspired by a recipe in this Vietnamese cook book. I have to say that I love this little dish! In addition to working as something new to serve to guests, it also works as a side dish for a family meal, or a light meal when served with a salad.
Have a great weekend.
Have you met the mung bean? Do you have a favorite vegetarian nibble you like to share with friends?
