Ginisang Munggo with Bacon and Pork Chicharon

Mung Bean Soup with Bacon and Pork Chicharon
Mung Bean Soup with Bacon and Pork Chicharon. Here is another innovative version of ginisang munggo. This ginisang munggo is cooked as a thick soup then served with bacon and pork chicharon garnish or toppings. For the recipe I used split mung beans for easier and shorter cooking time to make the beans into thick soup consistency. As an alternative use coarsely ground mung beans that are usually available in Metro Manila markets.

Cooking is basically the same with the usual ginisang munggo except that the mung beans have to be cooked till it disintegrate and form into thick soup consistency.

The bacon and chicharon toppings add visual appeal to the lowly Pinoy dish which bring the dish into another level. Here is the recipe of my innovative Mung Bean Soup with Bacon and Pork Chicharon.

Simmer for 30 to 45 minutes or until beans disintegrate, scoop out empty bean skins that rises, add more water as necessary. In another sauce pan sauté garlic, ginger onion and tomato.
