Spring Roll ( Lumpiang Gulay)

 Spring roll is one of the appetizer that is so easy to do. You don't have to be a good cook to make it. As long as you know how to saute and fry, you are good to go. Here is my mothers recipe, she always use tokwa/tofu and it really tastes good.

  • onion chopped
  • garlic minced
  • carrot, julienne cut
  • green beans, julienne cut
  • sweet potato and/or potato, julienne cut

  2. Add all the vegetables, tofu, little water, chicken cube, Stir well.
  3. Season with salt and pepper according to your taste.
  4. Let boil until half cook.
