  • Salt
  • Ground Pepper
  • Cooking Oil


  • 2 cups equivalent diagonally sliced Green Beans
  • 2 cups equivalent diagonally sliced Carrots
  • 2 cups equivalent diagonally sliced Celery
  • 2 cups equivalent diagonally sliced Sweet Potatoes or Kamote
  • 2 cups equivalent diagonally sliced Jicama or Singkamas
  • 1 cup precooked or canned Chickpeas or Garbanzos
  • 2 cups equivalent shredded Cabbage
  • 1/2 pound Pork or Chicken or Shrimp, cut thinly and in bite size pieces
  • 1/2 cup Chicken Broth, unsalted
  • 3 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 medium Onion, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons Salt
  • 2 teaspoons Ground Pepper
  • Cooking Oil for sauteing
  • 1 head Loose leaf lettuce or iceberg lettuce, for wrapping

1  Saute the garlic and onion, add the pork or chicken and cook for 3 minutes.

2 Add the carrots, sweet potatoes and 1/2 of the chicken broth. Cover and bring to a boil. Let the veggies cook for 3 more minutes.

3 Add the rest of the veggies, except the cabbage and the rest of the broth, then season with salt and pepper.

4 Cover and bring to a boil. Cook for 5 minutes.

5 Turn the heat off, then mix in the cabbage. Residual heat will partially cook the cabbage. Strain, then set aside while you prepare the wrapper and cook the sauce.

6 Make the lumpia wrapper.

7 Cook the lumpia sauce.

8 To assemble, lay the lumpia wrapper, put a piece of the loose leaf lettuce on top, add 3 tablespoon cooked vegetables and wrap with part of the lettuce sticking out.

9 To serve, the sauce goes on top of the lumpia, then topped with ground peanuts.


  • Buy the curly leaf lettuce instead of the regular loose leaf lettuce if you could find them. They are more appealing especially if you are to serve this as a party dish.
  • Do not overcook the vegetables, the singkamas and celery should still be crunchy - however, the carrots and sweet potatoes are cooked a little bit more.
  • The cooked vegetables should be thoroughly strained before wrapping so it does not soak the wrapper.
  • Wrap the individual Lumpiang Sariwa on wax paper to keep it fresh. Refrigerate if you are not to eat them right away, then microwave before serving.
