Mung Bean Patties

This recipe does not have exact measurements because I just throw it together on autopilot when I make it. I used to hate it when my mom gave me vague recipes without exact measurements, but now I understand why she did it! Adjust these approximate amounts as you see fit! Just taste as you go!

1) Soak 1 cup of yellow mung beans for a few hours. Use plenty of water because they are extremely absorbant!

2) Blend the mung beans with the water level about a centimeter above the level of the beans in a blender. Blend until smooth, adding water if it's too thick. It should be similar to cake batter.

3) Add chopped or shredded veggies. They should be small enough to cook through in a short time. Suggestions: green onions, shredded carrots, nappa cabbage, variety of onions, very thinly sliced bell pepper, shiitake mushrooms...

4) Season with salt, pepper, 1 tbps. sesame oil, cayenne pepper or asian hot pepper, 2 tbsp soy sauce.

5) Fry the patties in a lightly oiled skillet.

It's interesting you don't cook the beans before making the patties.. I like that.
