One of the husband's favorite Filipino dish is the Mung Beans Soup with Coconut Milk. He just loved it so much to the point he is craving for it every now and then. Since i am working at a restaurant and the shifts are lunch dinner time, i rarely cook food in my kitchen anymore and i really missing it lately. We both work outside so at home we are hectic and just grab or eat anything that is quick fixing you know. However, during my offs, i make sure i cook everyone something delicious and extra special! So the other day, i made us the mung beans for lunch a comforting soup and very timely for the cold weather right now.
