Moong bean soup is the perfect addition to a new mother’s postpartum diet. It is easy to digest, highly nourishing, and gives strength to the recovering mother. In Ayurveda, moong bean soup and kitchari are staples of a healthy vegetarian diet. It is also commonly used in the cleansing program of panchakarma. Split peeled moong beans, which are yellow and small in size, are called moong dal in India. They have a sweet and cooling energy, and can help heal conditions such as fever, diarrhea, eye problems and skin conditions. Yellow moong dal can be found in Indian food stores, in some health food stores, as well as online. Whole green moong may be easier to find, but requires soaking overnight as well as a longer cooking time. I recommend tracking down the yellow mung dal and having it as a staple in your vegetarian postpartum diet. This moong bean soup can be served at any phase of the postpartum window. Enjoy! 😋
