Lumpiang Hubad

Well Jade’s back from her class trip to London and I’m back to blogging.  I really didn’t feel like food blogging meals for one, so I took the opportunity to find my voice for the cookbook I’m writing.  Mission accomplished!

R.S. Macalaay’s  blog featuring Filipino food and other scrumptious dishes has become a big favorite of mine.  When I saw his “spring rolls without wrappers” plate, I knew I had to make it.  Crisp vegetables with ground pork and shrimp sounded like a winner to me and Jade’s trip left her with a serious craving for vegetables.

I added some ginger, celery, used a different peanut sauce and changed some quantities, so for authenticity, go to the blog site.  Thank you for the inspiration R.S.!

Lumpiang Hubad

1/2 lb ground pork

2 tbsp peanut oil

2 large garlic cloves, slivered

3 slices of fresh ginger, slivered

2 branches celery, thinly sliced

1 sweet potato, thinly sliced

1/4 head cabbage, shredded

1 cup green beans, thinly sliced

1lb shrimp, shelled and cleaned

1/2 cup chicken broth

Hoisin peanut butter sauce

Chopped peanuts

Asian noodles, cooked

Cook the pork in the oil until lightly browned.  Add the garlic, ginger and celery, stir frying for 1 minute.  Add the sweet potato and stir fry for 1 minute.  Add the cabbage and green beans and stir fry for 1 minute.  Add the shrimp and stir fry for 1-2 minutes.  Add the broth, bring to a boil and simmer for 1 minute.

Serve with the peanut butter sauce, chopped peanuts and noodles.

    Looks wonderful!

  3. That’s good to hear! Visit the Philippines soon! =)

  4. Looks so good and healthy 🙂

    Also, when I lived in the UK, I got such a kick out of the classes of children on trips. It is one of the great things about being in Europe — so many countries/cultures to explore. And, wisely, they start the children early.

  5. Hope the book’s coming on well, and say hello to Jade from Jenny and me.

  6. Fantastic – I didn’t know you were writing a cookbook! Ill be the first to buy a copy! This sounds and looks great! Interesting name, though, it sounds like an illness 😀 – no offence of course. I’ve missed your food, Rosemary.

  7. Very nice pictures and ingredients mix.

    I was so giddy when I saw your post “Lumpiang Hubad” I was browsing for a different recipe and there it presented itself, I can hear it calling my attention, “look at me, read me..” I’m glad I found your blog.
