Modern lumpiang ubod is most commonly served as lumpiang sariwa (fresh lumpia). It is made by julienning heart of palm and carrots into thin strips. It is mixed together with minced garlic, onion and various other vegetables if desired, including cabbage, green beans, singkamas (jicama), potatoes, and so on. Meat (pork, beef, or chicken), shrimp, or tofu can also be added. These are sautéed with spices and patis (fish sauce) until the ubod is soft and the meat is thoroughly cooked.
