Lumpiang Togue (Mung Bean Sprouts Spring Rolls) is a Filipino fried spring roll made of togue (mung bean sprouts) and other vegetables. Some might refer to this as lumpiang gulay.
When making this dish you can toss in any vegetables you have on hand.
Lumpiang Togue is light in texture that I can easily devour a few pieces in one sitting. It is usually paired with spicy vinegar dip.
I am one of those people who loves lumpiang togue with rice making it my main course. Most people will have this as an appetizer or as a snack.
This mung bean sprouts spring rolls recipe is so simple and easy to make. It is deliciously scrumptious with spicy vinegar mixture.
In fact, at times I eat this without wrapping and frying it. It is delicious as well.

Don’t overcook the togue or the other veggies. They are best crisp and crunchy.
