Health Rating


1/4 tsp Black pepper (to taste)
1 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
1 tsp Lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp Lemon peel (zest) (freshly grated)
4 cup Mung beans, boiled, canned
2 1/2 tsp Olive oil
4 tbsp Pine nuts, dried (toasted)
5 slice Prosciutto (shredded)
2 tsp Sage, ground (fresh)
1/4 tsp Salt


Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add beans, return to a boil, and simmer until crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain.

Heat 1/2 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add prosciutto; cook, stirring, until crispy, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain on a paper towel.

Wipe out the pan; heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil over medium heat. Add the beans, garlic, sage, 1/8 teaspoon salt and several grinds of pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the beans are browned in places, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in pine nuts, lemon zest and the prosciutto. Season with lemon juice, the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper.
