Fresh Lumpia

This was our brunch yesterday.

Crispy Liempo.

The liempo was thinly sliced and fried to crispy perfection.

Sinful yes but who cant resist this crunchy piece of meat. So for dinner, I wanted to make something healthy to eat. Therefore, I decided to make this.

Fresh Lumpia
For the filling;
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 boneless, skinless chicken breast half, thinly sliced
1/2 small carrot, finely julienned
2 cups sliced cabbage
2 green onions, finely julienned
2 teaspoons oyster sauce
1 teaspoon fish sauce
ground pepper to taste

It easy to do the lumpia filling. Just saute onion and garlic. Stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add the chicken, stir-fry. Remove from pan. Heat 1 tablespoon oil. Add carrots, then cabbage.Cook until vegetables are tender crisp, about 2 minutes. Return chicken mixture to pan; oyster sauce, fish sauce, and pepper; cook for 1 minute.

Cool filling mixture and spoon a tablespoon in lumpia wrapper. Repeat with remaining filling and wrappers.

For the wrapper, I usually use the wrapper bought at the supermarket but this time I like making the crepe type wrapper. I got the recipe here. :)

For the lumpia sauce, this is the recipe I usually use;

1/4 c. brown sugar
3 tbsp. cornstarch
1/4 c. soy sauce
2 tsp. ground garlic
1 1/4 water
Combine sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan. Stir in soy sauce and garlic. Add broth and mix well. Cook over medium heat until mixture thickens. Serve over Fresh Lumpia.

I considered making fresh lumpia as a labor of love (matrabaho kasi) but if husband wanted it, i shall make it. Thats love...mushy now. hahahaha!!!

Enjoy the week everyone!
