Lumpiang Sariwa

im been craving for this dish for so loooong...but just recently i'd got my guts to try. For the main reason that we just found out that hubby is diabetic at the same time he has a very high BP and cholesterol level, so ang lolo mo, need ng diet (btw, my hubby is certified carnivorous/carnivore..he hates all kind of leafy vege). Everyday is a task for me to serve delicious at the same time with accordance to his low carbo/low sodium/low fat diet. Let me share my recipe for my first ever fresh Lumpia.

ground chicken
minced garlic & onion
sweet potato
baguio/green beans
salt and pepper to taste
Romaine lettuce

1. Heat your pan with olive oil. When the pan is hot enough add in the ground chicken until it change it's color. Put in your onion and garlic. Saute well.
2. When the onions are translucent in color, it's the time for you to add in your carrots, cabbage, sweet potato and baguio beans. 
Note: No need to add water the vegetables will produce it's own water which is enough.
3. Seasoned with salt and pepper.
