Mung Bean Cake
According to Chinese medicine, yang qi, out of the entire four seasons of the year, is at its most plentiful during Dragon Boat Festival. During this period people’s emotions grow comparatively unstable, becoming greatly aggravated and anxious. Mung bean is sweet and cool, having the effect of detoxifying the body and relieving any internal heat. Mung bean cake is spongy and can alleviate any negativity brought on by overabundance of yang qi.
