Ginisang Togue (Sauteed Monggo Sprout)
Cooking MONGGO SPROUTS or TOGUE always brings me back to my grade school days. I remember my Science teacher asked the class to bring some monggo beans for an experiment. Fascinated and excited as I was, I brought lots of monggo sprouts next day. We placed the seeds on a pot of soil and poured with little water, placed under the sun and the next day, my monggo beans became monggo sprouts. Some of my classmates’ experiment was a fail but it didn’t matter. All of us graduated elementary. And I now cook monggo sprouts.
I sometimes could hardly find monggo sprouts or togue in our wet market but good thing, Robinson’s market seem to always have them in their vegetables section.
