Stuffed ,Wrapped  and Rolled.This is the life of Lumpia.It doesn’t  sit long in the table during parties and festivals. From a tray of lumpia, one cannot resist to pick a roll and dip.

My memories of lumpia are those busy mornings when there's a house celebration and I’d asked mom for any cooking task. I’d always wish she’d allow me sauté onions and garlic as its my favourite part of cooking but it never happened.Instead, she would ask me to carefully split the yellow wheat based wrappers from a packet of 10 to 30 sheets separated by a strip of coconut leaf. I would complain while mom would just laugh as she leaves me on a table with heaps of those yellow lumpia wrappers. she'd then be busy cooking the lumpia stuffing made of mung bean sprout, ground meat, carrots, chayote and other seasonings which seems foreign to me then.

I did not like the vegetable kind of lumpia until I reached 20s and I started eating it again. This was because of the fresh lumpia and the shanghai lumpia that became a hit on Filipino tables around 2000 and on.

According to a cuisine book entitled Palayok: Philippine food through time, on site, in the pot, lumpia has had different cultural incarnations including Vietnamese lumpia, Indonesia lumpia, and even European lumpia spreading from France and into England. In Venezuela Lumpia was introduced by the Chinese and it seems wherever lumpia goes people always tend to put there own spin on it whether it be fat lumpia, skinny lumpia or a combination of both.

Filipinos are very innovative that we came up to many versions of lumpia.There are hundred versions of lumpia in the world and with this I am proud when Alan Davidson, in his book The Oxford Companion to Food (1999),said "Philippines is the country where lumpia-making has been carried to a high pitch of excellence."

This is very close to the recipe my mom used as I was growing up. She would make 50-100 at a time and freeze whatever wasn't used. You don't need to defrost them when you're ready to cook. Remember when frying the lumpia, put the seam down first - it helps to seal it better. The dipping sauce we used was a mix of vinegar, pepper, crushed garlic and tiny chilies.

Lumpia has always been my favorite as a kid. I usually eat the usual lumpia but a vegetable lumpia will be a fun change. I can also serve this to my vegetarian friend.
