Filled with delicious pork and vegetables, these Filipino Spring rolls made in the Air Fryer come out incredibly crispy and full of flavor! You won’t be able to stop at just one, and since you can make these at home, you won’t have to!!

The first time I had lumpia was when my daughter made it several years ago. Honestly, I had NO idea what it was, but it smelled and tasted delicious!

What exactly are lumpia? Wikipedia explains:

Lumpia are various types of spring rolls commonly found in the Philippines[1] and Indonesia.[2] Lumpia are made of thin paper-like or crepe-like pastry skin called “lumpia wrapper” enveloping savory or sweet fillings.[3] It is often served as an appetizer or snack, and might be served deep fried or fresh (unfried). Lumpia are Filipino and Indonesian adaptations of the Fujianese and Teochew popiah, which was created during the 17th century in the former Spanish colonial era.[4][5]

In the Philippines, lumpia is one of the most common dishes served in gatherings and celebrations.[6] In Indonesia lumpia has become a favorite snack,[7] and is known as a street hawker food in the country.[8]

In the Netherlands and Belgium, it is spelled loempia, the old Indonesian spelling, which has also become the generic name for “spring roll” in Dutch.[7] A variant is the Vietnamese lumpia, wrapped in a thinner pastry, though still close in size to a spring roll, in which the wrapping closes the ends off completely, which is typical for lumpia.

Once I tasted them, I knew I wanted to learn how to make them. I made them with several different recipes, but was not a fan of one in particular. This recipe is something I’ve come up with through trial and error, and I hope that you’ll let me know what you think.

Rather than deep frying, I chose to use my beloved Air Fryer! Here’s some info on what is one of my all-time FAVORITE products:

Best Air Fryer for a Family

Ours is family-sized to quickly cook up to six servings, a whole chicken or roast, or appetizers for a crowd. Like a convection oven, super-heated air circulates giving food a crispy texture. No preheating is necessary, saving you precious time. Conveniently fits under kitchen cabinets.

Ingredients

  • One 16-ounce package of lumpia or Egg Roll wrappers
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/3 cup diced carrots
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1/3 cup green onions, finely diced
  • ½ cup thinly sliced green cabbage
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-pound ground pork
  • 12-ounce can water chestnuts, drained and minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 ½ teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1 egg, beaten

Instructions

Press garlic, dice carrots; peel and grate fresh ginger. Dice medium onion and enough green onions to make ½ cup.

Cut one small head of green cabbage into quarters.  Slice ½ cup for this recipe, you can slice or chop the rest to freeze for another recipe.

Heat oil in medium-sized skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering.  Add in onions, garlic, ginger, carrots and cabbage.  Cook 4-5 minutes, until onion is translucent.

Add in the ground pork, and cook another 6-8 minutes, or until pork is cooked through.

Add water chestnuts, salt, pepper, soy sauce, green onion and cilantro.  Cook about 1-2 minutes, then remove from heat.  Let cook until mixture is cool enough to be handled.

Beat egg, set aside.

Make Lumpia:

Take one lumpia or egg roll wrapper and place in diamond shape.  Use Medium Scoop to place @ two tablespoons of pork mixture onto the bottom of the wrapper, being sure to leave approximately 1.5 inches of space at the bottom of the wrapper.

Fold bottom portion over pork, then roll once. Press down both sides close to pork, then fold the sides in like an envelope.  Roll almost to the top, then brush the top point with the egg wash to help seal the lumpia.  Continue to do this until all lumpia are prepared. 

Spray air fryer trays lightly with oil, then place lumpia on trays.  Air Fry 8-10 minutes, until wrappers are crispy, switching trays halfway through.

Serve with sweet chili sauce, if desired. 

That’s it!  We LOVE this recipe, it makes a great appetizer or dinner, and it freezes and reheats beautifully.  Please let me know if you give this a try, or if you have your own recipe.  I would love to hear from you!
