Farmers Market Fresh: Take Home Lumpia

Eat it hot at the Market or take it home to enjoy later, have it your way.

Looking for something different to serve at your next party or pot-luck? Lumpia is a Phillipine pastry stuffed with a savory filling, usually ground meat and spices. Similar to a spring roll, these pastries are usually fried and served with dipping sauce.

I picked up some fresh home-made lumpia from B&C Beignets at (3 lumpia for $2.50) and enjoyed them fresh and hot at home the next day.  As a side dish, snack, appetizer, or light lunch with a salad, the tasty bites are delicious day and night.

If you stop by the Market .  If you request to buy them uncooked, they will send you home with some dipping sauce. Follow these simple steps to enjoy yours at home:

Fill a deep skillet with 1/2 inch of Canola Oil and heat to approximately 350 degrees. 

When oil is pre-heated, place lumpia in the hot oil, not touching or too crowded.  Fry for two to three minutes per side, or until golden and crispy, adjust heat accordingly.

Place on a plate covered with paper towels so oil can run-off. Allow to cool slightly, serve hot with dipping sauce.

Tip: If taking to a party, fry lumpia and store on paper towels in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 1 day ahead. Reheat in a single layer on a baking sheet in 350 degree oven at party location. Once reheated, you may want to cut them into smaller pieces to ensure everyone gets some--they go fast!
