Try this lumpia recipe, it's more on vegetables than meat. I also used ground chicken instead of pork for a healthier version. You can also add any kind of vegetables desired or even skip the ground chicken to make it all veggies. 


1 lb. ground chicken

1 pack menlo lumpia wrapper (30 pieces in a pack)

1 can water chestnut, water drained and chopped

1 large carrot, diced small

1 sayote, diced small

2 cups chopped cabbage

4-5 cloves of garlic, minced

1 large onion, minced

1 stem green onion, chopped

Salt and ground black pepper to taste

1 cup cooking oil

1 tablespoon cornstarch

Cooking Direction:

Using a wok saute garlic, onion and chicken till chicken turns golden brown in 2 tablespoon cooking oil.

Add carrots, sayote and water chestnut and stir well.

Season with salt and ground pepper.

Add cabbage and green onion. Stir well, remove wok from heat and allow to cool.

Microwave cornstarch diluted in 1/3 cup of water for a minute. Use this as a paste for sealing the lumpia wrapper.
