    Here are my version of them.............


    Pete’s Mung Bean Wraps

    Ingredients

    200g/Cup of Mung/Moong Beans
    Makes about 8 wraps
    Salt
    Method

    Soak the beans in cold water for between 12 -24 hrs. Depending whether they are split beans or whole, changing the water at regular intervals, removing any hardened beans.
    When ready grind them using a food processer and a small amount of water, adding salt, until you have a mixture similar to a pancake mix but slightly thicker.
    Heat a frying pan sprayed with Fry Light until its hot then ladle the mix and smooth out using the base of the ladle to form a thin coating, cook for 3-4 mins and flip over and cook until the other side is done. Use for wraps while still slightly warm to ensure easy folding.

    Debatable - people are waiting for SW to confirm one way or the other.

    I made these tonight and they wouldn't blend properly as most of the mung beans were still hard. I'd soaked them for 24 hours, kept changing the water so I don't know what went wrong :( So I had wrapless enchiladas for tea.

    Only split mung beans will soak within 24h, if you've got whole ones you'll need 48h or even more to soak them enough.

    Just to let you all know that I got an answer re the syn value for these (I sent the full recipe to slimming world for an official answer) because the mung beans are blended and used to make a wrap (therefore are a substitute for flour) they do indeed need to he synned. 3.5 syns per 28g of dried mung beans. You need about 100g of dried beans for 4 wraps, so 4 syns per wrap.
