Lumpiang Togue is one of the popular fried vegetable eggroll favorites, with the mungbean sprout filling as the main vegetable ingredient.
They are a common afternoon snack, usually peddled and comes with a side of spicy vinegar dipping sauce.
Carrots, green onion and fried tofu are stir-fried with the mungbean, then cooled and wrapped in spring roll wrappers and deep fried until crispy.
Have you had a vegetable eggroll that you need to spoon the vinegar dip instead of dipping it in because the veggie fillings tend to end up in the dip?
That is why I put a binder in my Lumpia, even though it's not a traditional practice.
After draining all the liquid sauce from the stir-fried veggies, I add one egg and a couple teaspoons flour before I roll them.
This prevents the veggies from scattering all over the place.
