|Toasted peeled mung beans|
The recipe: I boil 3 small baking potatoes with skin on, and peel them when they are cooked to fork tender and cooled. I grate the potatoes into a large bowl, crack in an egg, add 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 tsp salt and mix until combined. I toast 3/4 cup peeled mung beans in a 300 F oven for about 8 minutes or until the beans at the very side begin to turn golden brown. I grind the toasted mung beans using a coffee grinder to make mung bean flour, add to the potatoes and mix to combine to create a soft potato dough. Finally, I stir 1 tsp baking powder into 1/4 cup whole wheat flour and add the flour to the potato dough. I knead the dough until the flour is incorporated. I roll the dough to about 1/8 inch thick, cut into desired shapes using a pastry wheel, and place on a lined baking sheet. I sprinkle some sugar on top of the biscuits for a glittery look and bake in a 325 F oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until biscuits are crisp. Place on a cooling rack until cooled before enjoying.
I also used part of the dough into a pie tin for my cranberry cheesecake tart but I'll tell you about that one in a later post!
