Coconut Mung Bean Rice Bowl with Kampot Sauce

Vegan Borbor (Cambodian Rice Porridge)
Serves: 2

Good For: Lunch


Enjoy delicious khmer flavours with this healthy and light rice bowl. This recipe uses soaked split mung bean and shredded coconut for a subtly sweet taste that pairs deliciously with our  Brown Jasmine Rice and vegan version of Kampot dipping sauce (replacing fish sauce with soy sauce). The key is not to over cook ingredients to enjoy a fresh crunchy soft texture. Serve with chopped peanuts and fresh cucumber, mint and bean sprouts as a garnish!
