Filipino Turon (Banana Lumpia) Recipe #SundaySupper

Filipino TuronOh yeah, this #SundaySupper is a fun one… Stuff, Wrap and Roll! So many awesome recipes to try! Things have been super busy around the house and I’m getting ready for a house guest so I went simple. Well, simple if you are a fan of frying. I’m kind of afraid of frying so this took a bit of guts but hey, if I can do it you can do it.

Filipino Turon-4But what is in those tasty looking rolls? Bananas and brown sugar. Oh yeah, these aren’t egg rolls, they are Turon, or sweet Lumpia, a Filipino dish. Such a great dessert and as you can tell it gets better with drizzled chocolate. They are so easy to put together and are perfect for a crowd. Beware though, they might drip as the brown sugar gets all melty and wonderful as the banana softens on the inside. I highly suggest eating over a plate.

  • 16 Spring Roll Wrappers or vegan Lumpia wrappers if you can find them
  • 1/3 Cup Dark Brown Sugar

  • Begin to heat up a pan with oil on medium-low heat.
  • Slice each banana in half, then cut each piece into quarters.

  • Take the slices of banana and coat them each in the brown sugar then place one slice on an egg roll wrapper near bottom edge.
  • Roll sugared banana in wrapper once, then turn in edges and keep rolling. Seal the opposite edge with water.

  1. They sound delicious! And they look like something that would be difficult, but with those wrappers, I bet even I could make them. Wish I had about 3 of them for breakfast this morning. 🙂 Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    [WORDPRESS HASHCASH] The poster sent us ‘0 which is not a hashcash value.

    1. As a person who regularly eats cake for breakfast I can’t believe I didn’t think of that! I’m so making them for a brunch next time. And yes, they are SO easy. If you can roll a banana in brown sugar you can handle it. Plus, you can squish it when putting it in the wrapper, it’s so very easy to mold and fry up.

    1. I’m seriously afraid of frying things but this was SO easy with tongs and a big deep pan (no chance of getting hit by stray oil bits). I felt like I should write it out even for myself to make again as opposed to winging it at “whatever hot degrees” so I hope it really helps you!

    1. I don’t know much either! I used to work with some awesome Filipino ladies and was always jealous of their food, but it was never vegan so I couldn’t partake.
