    I tried this recipe recently and love the mung bean noodles! I also bought the black bean noodles but have yet to try them.

    These mung bean noodles are a recent favorite of mine. I love the texture and taste. The best part is they are loaded with protein. I can easily knock out a half a bag and get 50 grams of protein with very low fat and carbohydrates. I can eat the noodles plain, cold on salads or with sauces like the one above. I find these very satisfying and they have never thrown off my fitness goals, especially weight-loss. These are energizing. Gone are the days of eating a huge bowl of wheat pasta and falling asleep shortly after, FOR ME! Eat them with a different sauce every night. Blessings! Stay #plantstrong!
