Papaya Lumpia

Here's a tasty alternative to the usual vegetable lumpia or lumpiang togue (bean sprouts.) The ingredients are simple and healthy.. you don't even have to use shrimps! Recipe taken from the DELCA Cookbook: "A Treasury of Plantation Favorites."

Papaya lumpia

You will need the following:

Oil for sauteeing
Minced garlic
Onions, sliced
1/2 cup fried tokwa (tofu), sliced
1/4 cup broth
3 cups shredded green papaya
1/4 cup sweet potato, thinly sliced
lumpia wrappers

Saute garlic and onion. Add tokwa, shredded papaya and sweet potato and allow to cook in broth. When done, set aside mixture and wrap in lumpia wrapper.

Serve with brown sauce if desired:

Combine 1 1/2 cup water, 1/4 cup corn starch, 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup soy sauce. Cook over low heat until thick.
