Mung Bean Noodles -- low-fat, low-carb?

Ann-Marie | Nov 9, 2004 03:48 AM

My favorite Vietnamese restaurant serves a delicious chicken noodle soup made with these cellophane (mung bean) noodles and enhanced by cilantro, scallion, bits of chicken and chili. It's yummy and perfect for chilly weather. My question: Are cellophane noodles good for you? Because they're made of ground mung bean -- does that mean they're low fat and low carb? I'm trying to shed a few pounds and am curious if a big bowl of hot, soupy mung bean noodles qualifies as a "good for you" lunch!
