Dish 2015: Ube Halaya Lumpia (Filipino Purple Yam Dessert Spring Rolls)
Making lumpia is one of our family traditions. We use purple sweet potato (kamote), and boil or deep-fry it with brown sugar. Deep frying it lumpia-style with coconut sauce paired with ube ice cream or vanilla ice cream is my favorite snack. In the Philippines, there is no fall season (only rainy season). In the States, fall season brings the pumpkin and sweet potato. In my mind, those bring me back to my favorite snack, ube halaya lumpia. Try them once and you will be a fan for sure.
