What is Lumpiang Sariwa (Fresh Lumpia)?

Lumpiang Sariwa or Filipino Fresh Spring Roll is one of the varieties when it comes to Filipino-style spring rolls. It is made out of different types of vegetables–partnered with some meat and shrimp–that’s wrapped in a lightly fried wrapper.

Hence the name, lumpiang sariwa, which literally translates to “fresh spring rolls”. Aside from that, it is traditionally paired with a sweet sauce and crushed peanuts.

How to Make Lumpiang Sariwa With Homemade Wrapper?

Preparing lumpiang sariwa might be overwhelming to look at, at first because of the sheer number of ingredients you might need, but making it is not so bad at all and you’ll probably be finished in just a short amount of time.

The procedures are already divided in the three processes which you are about to do: preparing the filling, preparing the wrapper, and then preparing the sauce.

When preparing the filling, it is important that you cut the ingredients in almost the same sizes so you can be sure that they will all be cooked at the same time, and you won’t have any trouble with undercooked portions of the filling.

The vegetables are recommended to be as fresh as possible, because some mature or old vegetables take a longer time to be cooked.

Lumpiang Sariwa Tips:

  • Do not over stuff the wrappers with the fillings because it might be too hard to handle and it might get broken easily, so it is important to stuff it in moderation.
  • You can make the sauce a little bit thinner than desired if you feel like it will last longer, because it tends to get thicker as time goes by.
  • The use of optional ingredients improve the overall taste of the lumpiang sariwa roll, so it is recommended that you include them as much as possible, for the best tasting spring roll.
