Grandma Nena's Lumpia and Pancit

Rating: 4.23 stars
This is my grandma's lumpia and pancit that she has been making since before the family moved to the U.S. when my dad was a child. This is very popular with both family and friends. As soon as my friends in high school discovered my grandma was in town, my house became THE place for lunch! She serves her lumpia with a garlic and vinegar dipping sauce. It's very pungent, but oh so tasty. You can make a large batch of the lumpia and freeze it, so you can fry up some when ever you crave it! Spring roll wrappers are the best to use, they are thinner and lighter than egg roll wrappers.

Filipino Spaghetti

Rating: 3.65 stars
The difference between Italian spaghetti and Filipino spaghetti is the addition of banana ketchup, which makes this a rather sweet dish. Oh, and I almost forgot the hot dogs!

Pancit Molo (Filipino Wonton Soup)

Rating: 5 stars
Despite its name, this Pinoy pancit dish has no noodles, just wonton-like dumplings in place of the noodles. It is a soup dish served as a snack or as an appetizer before lunch or dinner. Use my recipe for homemade wonton wrappers (see Footnote).

Low-Calorie Vegetarian Filipino Pancit

Rating: 3 stars
Growing up with a Filipino mother, I had the pleasure of eating a lot of great Filipino recipes that, at the time, I took for granted. Pancit was just a side dish at special meals. My mother loves it. It always appeared on special occasions like Christmas or Thanksgiving, but never for dinner on any other day. Now I crave Filipino food daily. So when I have the chance to incorporate it into any old dinner, I will. Garnish with sesame seeds, scallions, or nuts.
