Lumpia or Filipino Egg Roll
Incredible! 5.0/5
(3 ratings)

This is one type of Lumpia (Tagalog for Eggroll-it's a Filipino Eggroll). I prefer using Ground Beef and Ground Pork but you can use the Ground Chicken or Ground Turkey along with the Pork also. I DO NOT COOK MY MEAT AND VEGGIES I prefer to mix them together in a bowl with the seasonings and then roll them in the Lumpia to a somewhat small size then deep fry them. They are more flavorful that way. You can cook it if you want to but it may not come out as well. I also prefer to use Chinese Yard Long Pole Beans cut into small diagonal pieces instead of regular Green Beans. I also use MSG in some of my cooking or otherwise known as Accent. It does help to bring flavors out in your cooking, but, this is optional for anyone else but me. I do not use regular Egg Roll Wraps. I prefer to use Lumpia Wraps(o'tasty spring roll wraps is the commercial name for them in the stores) which are larger and come in crepe thin slices. I also prefer to seal my wrappers with raw egg. It comes out better that way but you can use water-flour paste also. I also prefer to cut my veggies into tiny matchstick pieces. It's better that way in the Lumpia but you can do it anyway you want. For a dipping sauce you can use the Lumpia Sauce recipe below but in mine I turn it into a Sweet and Sour Sauce by making Annatto Water and adding 1/3 cup to the recipe instead of water, and 1/4 c crushed pineapples in juice. You can also mix in bits of bell pepper if you like. This is the Annatto Water recipe aka Achiote Water also: In a small heavy saucepan, heat the water over medium heat. Add the annatto seeds and cook, stirring constantly, until the water becomes a rich, orange-red color, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Strain the water into a jar, discarding the seeds, and keep covered in the refrigerator. You can do the same thing using Oil to make Annatto Oil. I also prefer to use just the soy sauce and about 1/4 vinegar mixed with fresh, not cooked, garlic and onion diced up and crushed with a bit of black pepper or chili peppers crushed in as a dipping sauce. I also like to use 1/4 Fish Sauce(Patis) mixed with 1/2 Lemon or Lime Juice for dipping also.

Sweetly Succulent Mahi Mahi
Very Good 4.5/5
(53 ratings)

This deliciously healthy, broiled fish dish combines both sweet and sour taste sensations with a wonderful spice kick from the ginger. The 30 minute prep time includes 20 minutes to marinate. This recipe is a snap and so delicious, you will appreciate the fresh ginger when you taste it!

Pancit Pangasinan or Filipino Rice Stick Special
(no ratings)

This is another type of Pancit Noodles that are eaten mainly in the Pangasinan and Manila areas of the Phillipines. These are always a special treat along with Lumpia at all Holidays and Parties and Family Get Togethers. I prefer using the Chinese Yard Long Pole Beans in this but you can use the Green Beans. I don't use the Red Peppers in mine but you can if you like. I think it tastes better without them. I love to have Lemon or Calamansi Juice mixed with Fish Sauce or Patis over mine when I eat it. It's also very good without the sauce to top it. Try it. You may like it.

This is seriously the world's best spinach and artichoke dip! It's creamy and fairly low fat. I use low fat cream cheese, but you could use fat free. This slimmed down version of your favorite dip is easy to make--and it's light enough for you to load up on it! This can also become a decadent pasta sauce. (As a sauce, it makes 10 servings. You might need to thin it a bit with cooking water from the pasta.)

A light and nutritious full meal. Can easily leave out the ham to make it vegan, or try substituting feta cheese for a vegetarian option.
