Two worlds collide, or rather, collaborate beautifully in this hummus recipe that gets its green color from mung bean. The Middle East and Asia bring two of their biggest players to the table. If you’re not familiar with mung bean, it’s a super-food – high in protein, low in calories, packed with antioxidants, and slightly sweet in flavor. Dipping and spreading encouraged.
