Toge or bean sprouts is already a delicious ingredient for fried lumpia (spring rolls), but as the main ingredient for ginisang toge (sauteed bean sprouts), it becomes simply awesome. Pairing toge with some seasoning mix makes the preparation faster and easier.


How to Cook
  1. Wash the bean sprouts. Set aside.

  2. Wash and cut into julienne strips the carrots and baguio beans. Set aside.

  3. Prepare minced garlic and sliced onion bulbs.

  4. Wash ground pork and drain.

  5. Wash and unshell shrimps then drain.

  6. Heat oil in a pan and sauté onions and garlic.

  7. Add the ground pork.

  8. When the ground pork turns brown, add water then pour a sachet of flavor seasoning mix powder.

  9. Add the carrots and baguio beans.

  10. When the carrots and baguio beans are half-cooked, add the toge and shrimps.

  11. Simmer then remove from fire. Do not overcook as vegetables might turn soggy.

  12. Serve hot.

Steps 3 and 5 can be replaced by just frying the ground pork, adding the water and flavor seasoning mix.

Enjoy your toge!
