#197 Lumpiang Sariwa

Lumpiang sariwa or fresh spring rolls consist of minced ubod (heart of palm), flaked chicken, crushed peanuts, and turnips as an extender in a double wrapping of lettuce leaf and a yellowish egg crepe.

The accompanying sauce is made from chicken or pork stock, a starch mixture, and fresh garlic. This variety is not fried and is usually around 2 inches in diameter and 6 inches in length; it is also one of the most popular among the Filipino variants of lumpia or spring rolls. Lumpia sariwa is derived from the original Chinese popiah and is great for snacks, light meals or as a side dish.

Bon appétit
