Lumpiang Sariwa

Crisp vegetables wrapped in a soft, delicate crepe make this dish a healthy alternative to the fried spring roll. This version of lumpia (Filipino for spring roll) is prepared without frying and served fresh or sariwa with toasted peanut toppings and a sweet-savory sauce. This recipe cleverly replaces the traditional ubod or heart of a palm tree with puso ng saging or banana blossom which brings a unique flavor to this Filipino favorite.

Instructions:
Filling

  2. Add the banana blossom and stir fry for less than a minute.

Egg Roll / Crepe
  1. To make the batter, combine the cornstarch and water, then whisk in the beaten egg.
  2. Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat. Use a crepe pan, if you have one, or a flat non-stick pan.
  3. Thinly coat the pan with a little oil. Wipe off any excess with a paper towel.
  4. Pour just enough of the batter, quickly swirling until it spreads out to thinly and evenly cover the pan.
  5. This will make wafer-thin omelets or crepes.
  6. Transfer to a plate for rolling.
Sauce

  2. Stir in the cornstarch mixture.
  3. Continue cooking until the sauce has thickened.

  3. Serve fresh with the garnish and sauce.
