WHB - Lumpiang Shanghai and Malunggay

Lumpia is spring roll in Filipino. We have Lumpiang Gulay (Vegetable Spring Rolls) and Lumpiang Shanghai. Nope, Lumpiang Shanghai is not made in China. Lumpiang Shanghai is Filipino spring rolls filled with meat filling. There are many variations of the meat filling. You may use pork, chicken or beef. Add your favorite veggies like carrots, celery, parsley, garlic, some spices perhaps. Just mixed all together, wrap in Lumpia (spring roll) wrapper and fry.

Malunggay is known as a miracle vegetable. Usually served in meals,
it is also a medicine. Malunggay promotes good eyesight and
digestion. It is used to clean wounds. Malunggay leaves are high in
calcium and breast-feeding mothers are advice to eat Malunggay
leaves to produce more milk.

We usually have Malunggay in soup. Now it's adding nutrients to my lumpia filling.


Filling:
1/4 k round lean pork
1 onion, chopped
1 cup singkamas (jicama), chopped
1/2 cup Malunggay leaves
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 egg
salt and pepper
