Filipino Vegetable Lumpia

Back for more Filipino party food, these crispy vegetable lumpia are heart to resist

Vegetable Lumpia

Iiiiit’s (vegetable lumpia) party time!

We’re back on the Filipino party train. There’s always a reason to have a party, right? Birthday? Wedding? Child Birth? Woke up still breathing? Woke up not breathing? Get everyone over for a feast!

And you’re not having a proper feast without lumpia. My Filipino vegetable lumpia recipe is a classic, handed down from Lola to Lola We’ll also be providing a step by step lumpia shanghai recipe since you can’t just have one type of lumpia. Maybe fresh lumpia, too.

You’ll find these similar in style to Chinese egg rolls, but egg rolls are generally fatter with thicker wrappers making these vegetable lumpia much easier to eat too many of.

And we do have a recipe for making your own spring roll wrappers, but this is much simpler, and faster!
