Campground Potluck Recipe of the Week
Mung Beans and Rice
A filling and satisfying side dish, this recipe is also a conversation starter. Most of us are familiar with mung bean sprouts, not with beans simply as beans.
1 cup mung beans, rinsed and picked over
½ stick butter
Medium onion, chopped
2 cups long-grain rice
½ teaspoon each ground ginger, ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
6 1/2 cups water
Soak beans overnight or bring to a boil, cover and set aside for an hour. Melt butter and stir in onion until it softens. Stir in rice, seasonings and drained mung beans to coat. Add water. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat and cook 25-30 minutes until rice and beans are tender. Serves 8.
Pressure cooker method: Proceed as above. Cook 3-4 minutes at full pressure, then remove from heat and let pressure return to normal.

Simply made with Cream of Wheat or Cream of Rice, this pudding is healthful as all heaven. By making it yourself you can sweeten or not, using honey, sugar, brown sugar, agave or a zero-calorie sugar substitute. It’s especially colorful when made with a red juice such as cranberry or pomegranate.
3 cups 100% fruit juice (not juice cocktail)
½ cup regular Cream of Wheat or Cream of Rice
Sweetener of choice
Optional: 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon or a few drops flavoring such as vanilla extract.
Bring to a boil. Stirring constantly, add cereal gradually. Reduce heat and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes or until it’s thickened. Add sweetener ad lib and cool or chill. Serve as is or with whipped cream. Makes 6 portions.
