If you've ever had lumpia or Filipino eggrolls, then you'll understand the desire to ketofy these babies. When I went keto a few years ago I said goodbye to rice, which if you ask my parents, is quite unthinkable for a Filipina to do. Well I've managed well without rice, but the other Filipino dishes were leaving an empty place in my heart (haha), until now.
Keto lumpias are a REAL-THING and quite easy. It is a multi-step process since you have to cook the filling, let it cool, then wrap the lumpias and lastly fry them. The actual recipe is not that hard at all, but the process is long, but oh so worth it.
When I made these lumpia I used a coconut wrapper from Thrive Market that had 6g net carbs per sheet. While it is definitely better than the 20-38grams of carbs in ONE regular wrapper (Yup, let that sink in a bit. At the last Filipino party, how may lumpias did you have? Multiple that by 20-38g of carbs and yikes!), I wanted to see if there was better. Luckily Amazon sold these coconut wrappers with only 4g NC - woohoo! I've ordered them to try them so I'll make sure to update this once I do the test. In the meantime you can find the wrappers here amzn.to/30row1Q. Now onto the recipe!
1 lb ground pork
1/2 onion diced
1 tablespoon avocado oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 head cabbage
1 cup green beans, sliced – These should be "slivered", sliced on an angel. Yes, it will take time to cut these.
1 cup bean sprouts
2 tablespoons fish sauce
3 tablespoons liquid aminos
1/4 cup water
salt and pepper to taste
Coconut Wrappers (I recommend these)
