mongo guisado, lumpia & banana sauce

A Filipino mini-feast, with veganized versions of:
- Mongo guisado: thick mung bean soup with homemade faux pork (marinated and crumbled tofu, broiled till chewy and almost crisp)

- Lumpia: Fried spring rolls stuffed with carrot, onion, faux pork, scallions, cabbage, pepper, soy sauce, garlic powder
- Banana Sauce, purchased in Jackson Heights, New York

Hi. Sorry to be a stickler, but I read that vegans do not eat any animal-based food products (dairy, eggs, honey, jell-o, etc). Lumpia wrappers are often made with eggs. Lumpia probably does not qualify as a vegan dish.

I used dumpling wrappers for the lumpia, and they did not have eggs. It's not too hard - you just have to check the ingredients list, and you can usually find vegan wrappers.
