  1. In a wok or skillet, saute the garlic and onions in hot oil until the onions are translucent. Add the pepper and soy sauce and saute further.
  2. Drain the excess oil, add the water and bring to a boil. Add the carrots and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the green beans, celery, bamboo shoots, water chestnuts, and jicama. Simmer for another 5 minutes. Remove the pan from heat and add the bean sprouts. Cool to room temperature.
  3. Place three heaping tablespoons of the filling diagonally near one corner of each wrapper, leaving a 1 1/2 inch space at both ends. Fold the side along the length of the filling over the filling, tuck in both ends, and roll neatly. Keep the roll tight as you assemble. Moisten the other side of the wrapper with water to seal the edge. Cover the rolls with plastic wrap to retain moisture.
  4. Heat a wok over medium heat, add oil to 1/2 inch depth, and heat for 5 minutes. Place 3 or 4 egg rolls in the oil, gently. Fry the rolls until all sides are golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately

These were fantastic but I followed another recipe on how to cook them. After rolling, I lightly brushed with oil and baked them in the oven @425 for 20 minutes. Turned them over after 10 minutes. Same great taste without the added fat of frying.

Haven't had lumpia in many years, my ex's mother used to make them and I loved them. I will try this recipe out and post again afterwards.

I also have filipina descent in myself, and it is so great to finally have this recipe. If you like eggrolls, you will absolutely love lumpia!!

I tried lumpia for the very first time after making them tonight, and they were delicious! I changed the recipe a bit by leaving out a couple of the veggies and adding a vegetarian meat substitute (crumbled soy "beef"). I'm not sure what dipping sauces are traditionally used for this dish, but I used satay sauce and soy sauce, and both were very good. I think the leftover filling will be great in lettuce wraps tomorrow.

Being of Filipino ancestry, I love eating lumpia! I did take it for granted while living in Hawaii, since it was available everywhere. I now live in Tennessee and haven't found any Filipino restaurants. I did make it for a potluck at my office and everyone just LOVED it!!!

My father-in-law makes this when ever there is some kind of special event in the family. Everyone in my family & my husbands absolutely love it!You do NOT have to be Filipino to love Lumpia.

I love this recipe! So easy and delicious. I leave out the celery (personal preference) and jicama (because I can never find it). It's great for entertaining!
