This is a hearty soup that's excellent to eat by itself or with rice. Mongo beans are also called mung or green beans. Malungay leaves are very nutritious and the tree is sometimes called a horseradish tree.
wow. this brings back memories of my lolo's cooking. this was his ultimate comfort food specialty. he never used prawns but he added slices of ginger and/or ampalaya. i think the prawns make a wonderful complement. - 22 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was the first time I made this and it turned out great! I used my slow cooker to soften the beans which turned out perfect. I also added tinapa in the soup...so good! - 06 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My father cooked mongo all the time and I didnt know how to make it. Now I do. Taste just like his if not better. - 04 Jun 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
