CookShow: Fresh Lumpia, Lumpia Sariwa Recipe

I’m going to call this a more ‘healthier’ alternative to most lumpia. As much as we love our deep fried goodness – this one is more heartier and filled with lots of great vegetables. It’s topped with a garlic peanut sauce and can be served with egg roll wrapper or just on the lettuce by itself!
