I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted on this blog. The holidays were so busy with guests, travel, and events. Now that things have finally settled down I figured that it would be a good time to post something.
A popular dish in Filipino culture is lumpia. Traditionally, lumpia is a fried delicacy, but for my version I actually bake it to make it a little bit healthier.
- 1 pound ground pork
- 4 eggs
- 2 heaping tablespoons of garlic
- 1 heaping tablespoon of minced ginger
- 1 tablespoon black pepper
- 1 tablespoon garlic salt
- 2 celery sticks finely chopped
- 2 carrot sticks finely chopped
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1 package of wrappers (DO NOT USE EGG ROLL WRAPPERS)
- 1/4 cup of water
- Coconut oil spray or olive oil spray
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Mix the ground pork, eggs, garlic, ginger, pepper, garlic salt, celery, carrots, and soy sauce in a bowl. Set aside.
- Take lumpia wrappers and cut them in half diagonally.
- Take a tablespoon of the meat mixture and place towards the bottom in the center of the wrapper. Follow the rolling direction on the back of the lumpia wrapper. Use the water to seal the wrapper.
- Spray a baking sheet and place the lumpia on the greased sheet. Spray the top of the lumpia.
- Bake the lumpia for 20 minutes rotating the lumpia once.
- Serve while warm.
