Lumpiang Sariwa

Lumpiang Sariwa or Fresh Spring Roll is a vegetable dish composed of different vegetables with a soft (unfried) wrapper garnished with sweet sauce and crushed peanuts. Some popular variations of this dish are lumpiang ubod (made with heart of palm) and lumpiang hubad (Unwrapped lumpiang sariwa).

Tasting this dish makes me remember the Lumpiang Sariwa that my mom makes.

    • groovybaby says:

      Cilantro is already the English name, hun. The Chinese or commonly used in Tagalog is Kinchay. :0)

  5. try ko po itong lumpia bukas! thanks po sa pag share..

  6. I think I finally found the best fresh lumpia here in your website. Thanks to you!!!

  7. You could switch to regular flour (arina) instead of cornstarch. Flour would just make the sauce look cloudy instead of clear brownish color. You don’t have to add singkamas and tofu, you can just stick with green beans, carrots, sweet potato, cabbage if you wish. If you guys like bean sprouts you could add that to your list of main vegetables. Omitting singkamas and tofu will not change the taste that much because they are just extenders (pampadami). Yes, you could mash garlic if you wish. I hope this will help. Good Luck!

  8. bkt po white onin ang gngmit mo?

  19. mrs. chandran says:

    this is such a delicious recipe..i and my husband liked it. i love this kind of wrapper, although it was kinda soft so the tendency when you roll it, the wrapper tears apart. is there any suggestion so i can improve the wrapper.Thanks again.

  20. na i substitute ko po ung flour sa cornstarch at nag work naman…try nyo lang din po….

  21. hiyah! i’m from WA. I found lots of cornstarch in asian stores. there are lots of asian stores all over WA. i hope u can find a good one wherever u are.
    for the singkamas, u may try a not so ripe pear. it taste the same- crunchy, slightly sweet, and juicy. there are singkamas in asian stores too, though rarely.
    for the tofu, i don’t think there are any substitute for it. sorry… u may use really fresh, good quality tofu so that the taste is mild and unoffensive for those sensitive tastes. and then don’t tell ur husband about it! hehehe

  22. Just recently i joined your website…I like all your recipes as they are simple yet truthful and free!! I introduced your site to my daughter, who now resides in USA…tho she is not an expert in cooking but she just follow the instructions…now she is enjoying cooking and searching for more recipes in your site till midnight. She is so excited to learn more as her husband and daughter appreciate her cooking Panlasangpinoy way. Thank you!
