Mung Bean Sprouts

It's a welcome surprise that my daughter is fond of togue (mung bean sprouts). She loves this better as lumpia (spring roll). If we have it as lumpia, I like it dipped in vinegar with soy sauce and lots of onions. It was raining hard almost the whole day yesterday and this was what I thought of preparing - togue mixed with carrots and tofu - to go with the grilled fish.

Quick to cook and very filling plus very nutritious. According to Sprout People, mung beans are reach in Vitamins A, B, C and E, calcium, iron, magnesium and potassium. From Associated Content, mung bean sprouts are free of cholesterol and has approximately 30 calories only per cup. Hail to the bean sprouts!

This reminds me to make lumpia taugeh, our favorite specially with spiced vinegar.
BTW, have you seen LUMPIA, a Filipino-American movie where the hero fights bad boys with you guessed it, lumpia.:D
