Hearty Lumpia and Siomai

If you are having hard time to make your kids eat veggies, one is mask the veggies and turn it into something they love. Before, I turned puso ng saging or bananablossom into a burger (you can get the recipe at Chemist Dad), now here is another suggestion. Turn it into lumpiang shanghai and siomai. To add another twist, the mixture is prepared the longganisa way.

Since the lumpia wrapper is not enough for the prepared mixture, I turn the remaining mixture into siomai.

Hearty Lumpiang Shanghai and Siomai


You will need:
¼ kilo ground pork
1 medium-sized puso ng saging (banana blossom), minced
1 medium-sized carrots, shredded
1 medium-sized onion, minced
1 tsp ground pepper
1 tsp salt
½ cup tomato sauce
½ cup all-purpose flour
½ cup brown sugar
Lumpia and siomai wrapper

Here’s how to do it:
In a bowl, mix all the ingredients. Wrap about 1 tablespoon of mixture using lumpia or siomai wrapper.

For the lumpia: Deep fry until the wrapper turns golden brown.

For the siomai: Bring water into rolling boil. Steam prepare siomai for about 15-20 minutes.

Serve with whatever dip you prefer.


  1. So delicious Sis! nagutom tuloy ako and to mention that its healthy, sure the kids will love this idea. Thanks for the recipe:)

  2. That really looks like a very tasty snack for the kids.. I'm sure Matt enjoyed eating it.

  3. Those look delicious! We do that all the time din, mask veggies into the ulam hehe. But now that we no longer eat pork, we eat more veggies than ever :D

  4. I love both of this! But I prefer lumpia over siomai and the plating looks good too!

  5. Yum. I want to eat dimsum tuloy Daddy A. :)
