Lumpiang Sariwa(fresh vegetable crepe)

lumpia………….Yes, we have our own version of crepe even though it is highly influenced by chinese cuisine. There are many versions of lumpia. It can be lumpiang toge (beansprout), lumpiang shanghai, lumpiang hubad and many more. But to all the “lumpia” I have mentioned, this is one of my favourite!………………Did you know that lumpiang sariwa is composed of lots of vegetables? one of these are lettuce leaves. This lettuce leaves is loaded with vitamin C and beta-carotene. This nutrients helps in preventing the oxidation of cholesterol, which can reduce risk of stroke and heart attack. The folic acid found in this lettuce helps keep blood vessels healthy and clear, which also reduces the risk of heart attacks and stroke……….
