How to Make Togue or Toge Sprout from Mongo Beans

Togue are the sprouts from mongo beans (green mung beans)

When I was little my mom would make me put the mongo seeds in a palanggana (basin) filled with water. I would fill the basin full and cover it. We would leave it soaked overnight. By lunch hour, the next day, you got naked and long togue sprouts. The green mongo shells will float to the surface of the water.

Afterwards wash the sprouts in fresh water to clean out the loose mongo shells. Voila! The togue now ready for cooking! You can make Togue guisado, Stir Fried Togue, Togue with Tokwa (Soy) dishes
