This Lumpiang Sariwa / Hubad is a Chef Claude Tayag’s recipe “From a Kapampangan Palate to an Artist’s Palette: An Update on Four Pampango Dishes”.
This lumpia mix can be used as a filling for fresh spring roll (lumpiang sariwa) or fried lumpia. The lumpia mix of fresh vegetables is flexible, depending on one’s preference. Pork, chicken or shrimps can be added accordingly, or if a strict vegan dish is desired, then just avoid the meats.
