mung bean rice pilaf with kale

I recently raided the bulk section of Whole Foods, arbitrarily picking weird or unique items to test out in my kitchen. I came across mung beans and decided to give them a shot.

I made this super easy dish for lunch today by combining a seemingly random assortment of items.

1) Prepare mung beans {boil 1 1/2 cups of water, add 1/2 cup of beans, turn to low, simmer for 35-50 minutes or until the water is absorbed and beans are tender}

2) Prepare TJ’s Multigrain Pilaf according to package

3) Heat a dash of olive oil on medium in a pan; saute torn pieces of washed and de-stemmed kale for about 4 minutes

4) Layer the mung beans, pilaf, and kale with TJ’s Masala Simmer Sauce and enjoy!
