One day I have decided to try and experiment how to grow a mung sprouts. It took 4 - 5 days to grow before harvesting and ready for cooking. Growing mung sprouts needs a technique on how to do it, otherwise, you got the tendency to fail like what I did before. So make sure you do your research before doing so. I was thinking it would be nice to make it a lumpiang togue and so I did.

Lumpiang togue is one of variation of lumpia or spring roll and its major ingredients is togue or what we call mung sprouts, mix with other vegetable such as carrot, green beans, celery etc. It is a popular appetizer or snack in the Philippines and best served with  spicy vinegar with onion, garlic and crushed whole peppercorn.

  3. Once the onion turned transparent, add the pork meat. Stir according till it turned to light brown.

  5. Blend it well with the pork and simmer for few minutes and stir occasionally until it dried up and turned to golden brown.
  6. At this stage, add the water, simmer for 2 minutes and followed by the vegetable (carrots, green beans and celery) and simmer again for 2 - 3 minutes .Make sure the veges will not get overcooked so checking it from time to time is recommended.

  11. Now time to fry the lumpia. Pour the remaining oil in the pan or pot and wait till it is hot enough.
  12. Deep fry the wrapped lumpia till it turned to golden brown. If your oil is not enough for deep frying, make sure you turn your lumpia on all side when it turned to golden brown to prevent it from burning.
