Instant Pot Mung Bean Stew or Monggo Guisado
Easy one pot mung bean stew
Main Course, Soup
Time to Pressure and Release
virgin coconut oil
(ground pork, diced pork belly or pork roast)
malunggay or moringa leaves
(or 2 cups spinach)
Set the Instant Pot to Sauté mode and melt the coconut oil.
Add garlic and onions, sauté until onions are translucent and fragrant.
Add pork, sauté until lightly brown.
Turn off Sauté mode.
Add mung beans, water, and malunggay or moringa leaves. (If using spinach, add leaves at the end.)
Cover and set to Bean/Chili (or manual) for 10 minutes. When done, let the pressure release naturally.
Add salt (and spinach if using, then allow spinach to wilt).
Serve and enjoy!
You may substitute shrimp instead of pork, or omit entirely.
If using shrimp, add at the end, after releasing pressure.
You may use swiss chard or spinach, instead of moringa or malunggay leaves. Or use a combination of greens.
Total cook time = sauté time + time to build pressure + cook time at pressure + time to release pressure.
