Healthy Fresh Lumpia Recipe


  1. For the stock, boil the shrimp shells in 1 1/2 cups water. Saute the garlic, onions, ground port, shrimp, and tofu. Add the potatoes and 1/2 cup stock. 
  2. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the beans and cook for another 5 - 10 minutes. Then add turnips, soy sauce, vegetable oil, salt and pepper (to taste), and fish sauce.
  3. Continue to stir and cook for 5 more minutes. Drain and save the broth for the dipping sauce. 
  4. Allow the mixture to cool. Separate the lumpia wrappers carefully. Line one end of the wrapper with a small piece of lettuce so that the lettuce pokes out a little bit - this is the top of the roll. Use 2 tbsp. of the mixture for filling (this will be a fatter roll than for fried lumpia) on top of the lettuce and roll the wrapper.
  5. Close the bottom end of the roll by folding it and securing it with a little water. Wrap each roll with wax paper.
  6. Makes 2 dozen, depending on size of roll. Spread garlic sauce (below) liberally over lumpia.
