As Seen On Dr Oz. - Weight Loss Mung Bean Soup Ingredients

In Ayurveda, mung bean soup has a powerful effect. It helps to balance all 3 doshas. Its spices are the driving force behind this delicious and nourishing soup. When combined with certain sharp and penetrating herbs, the blocks created by Aam – or the toxic mucus that lodges in the body over time due to poor diet, lack of exercise and wrong lifestyle – are broken and flushed out of the body. That's why it's the perfect soup to jump start any Ayurvedic diet.

Green Mung Bean Soup Reipe From| The Dr. Oz Show
1 cup whole green mung beans - soaked overnight
2 cups water + 1/2 - 1 salt tsp. salt to taste - to cook beans in pressure cooker
2 cup water to achieve the soup
1 tbsp sunflower oil or ghee
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/4 tsp hing (kmnown as asafoetida in the West)
1 bay leaf
1/2 tsp tumeric
1 tsp mixed cumin and coriander powder
1 1/2 tsp ginger chopped
1/2 tsp garlic - chopped
