Vegetable spring rolls or lumpiang gulay is similar to lumpiang togue the difference is main ingredients. With the former, the main ingredients used are cabbage. This is my first time to cook lumpiang gulay. I always make lumpiang togue whenever I have cravings for fried lumpia. If you are looking for a snack or main dish, you can try vegetable spring rolls.
My son and daughter love lumpiang gulay. Whenever I cook lumpiang togue they always just eat a piece but with lumpiang gulay, I was surprised that they eat more. They said they love it especially when they dipped it in vinegar. This dish is great for kids who don’t eat vegetables as you get to feed your kids vegetables. By the way, I used tofu instead of ground pork to make my lumpia healthier.
I would have also added shrimp if my son is not allergic to it. But if you don’t have any problem with shrimp, feel free to add it to your lumpiang gulay.
