In honor of what category gets the most LIKES, I am posting a new KETO Soup recipe inspired by friends in Mexico. Once a week I work in the kitchen at a local orphanage with Corina, the authentic cook who measures nothing! This chicken soup recipe will morph into several different dishes. One of my other instructors for Chinese cuisine is a young local artist named Sacha who turned me onto the MUNG BEAN STRINGS – which morph into Italian, German, and Mexican dishes. With ZERO calories, fat and sugar, these MUNG BEAN noodles are perfect for KETO or Plant based enthusiasts. A HUGE SHOUT OUT of THANKS to all who are following “Living Abroad” !!! What a thrill as a writer to be followed by 500 other scribblers from around the globe. Living Abroad in Mexico I get to read and connect with fascinating people worldwide, and that is BIG FUN for me! MUNG BEAN nutrition: Low Carb Mung Bean Threads
