Happy Monday everyone!! How did 4th July weekend go?? I am sure it would have been fun. We had a very relaxing weekend. It was a good break from the routine hustle bustle.

This weekend was made more special with a compliment given by a mom of 1-year-old. I was told that she didn’t have to think twice before making recipes from EasyBabyMeals. This blog was helping her a lot.

That was such a beautiful and encouraging complement to all the work that goes into making this blog. Thank you very much. I felt honored. 


Today I will share a recipe which has a vegetable, grain, and lentil. Sweet potatoes with rice and mung beans. Mung bean is a lentil which is widely used in Asian countries. It is a native of the Indian subcontinent.

Mung bean is a part of yellow lentil family and is very nutritious. It contains iron, protein, and fiber as well as various types of minerals and vitamin B, which are all essential for growing babies.

Mung beans can easily be found in various supermarkets, organic stores, and Indian grocery stores. Most of the time cooking instructions are given on the package. They need to be stored in the airtight container to avoid getting spoiled.

 I have used Turmeric as an added spice in this recipe. This spice has its own set of benefits.  Serving mung beans with rice and vegetables makes it a complete meal.
