    For our lumpia, we wanted a wrapper that was different, so we made it with purple yam. The traditional sauce for fresh lumpia is sweet and salty, thickened with cornstarch, and garnished with ground peanuts and raw minced garlic. We decided instead to incorporate the peanuts into our sauce and created a peanut-lemongrass-garlic-flavored sauce.
