Lumpiang Hubad, Naked Spring Rolls. Lumpia or Lumpiang shanghai is the Pinoy version of Vegetable Spring Rolls. The vegetable ingredients varies and dependent on the available vegetables or on one’s personal choice of vegetables. Lumpiang Hubad, Naked Spring Rolls is the version without the spring roll wrapper. It served with rice as a vegetable viand topped with Pinoy Style Peanut Sauce similar to the topping sauce of Fresh Lumpia, Lumpiang Sariwa, another version of Vegetable Spring Rolls, fresh because it is serve without deep frying the rolls, and serve with the Pinoy Special Peanut Sauce. Cooking is basically the same with any vegetable spring rolls which involves sautéing and stir-frying the ingredients together. A word of caution, because of the large selection of vegetable ingredients watch out for the quantities, I myself most of the time end up cooking more than what we can eat because of the desire to add every type of vegetables that are at hand. The good thing is you do not need to have all the vegetable ingredients you may use only the vegetables that are available.
For the peanut sauce I have innovated outside from the traditional soy sauce and cornstarch type of sauce, instead I used the readily available oyster sauce and crunchy peanut butter spread. I do advice also to refrain from using the oily sweet version of peanut butter, otherwise reduce the amount or altogether omit the sugar ingredient of the sauce.
