Protein Packed Mung Bean Salad

Here is a dead easy salad to have with a meal as a side or even as a post training snack. The mung beans that I used have a protein content of 22%, meaning they are a healthy and cheap recovery food.

Here is what you do:

  • Soak 3 cups of raw mung beans in cold water for at least 2 hours (preferably more)
  • Boil for 20mins, drain and allow to cool
  • Dice 2 tomatoes
  • Dice 1 small red onion
  • Crumbled Salad cheese (or feta)
  • Mix up a salad dressing (1 portion white wine vinegar to 1.5 portions of oil and mix in salad dressing herbs or herbs of your choice)

Serve as you desire. I had mine on top of fresh toast with boiled egg. I find that it’s hard to find a hunger taming snack that is filled with all the good stuff you need for recovery but here one is.
