Baked Plantain Spring Rolls

Baked Plantain Spring Rolls

A friend introduced me to a Filipino recipe called Turon, which is a sweet plantain spring roll treat. Immediately I saw the recipe, I knew what my version would taste like. Seeing as I don’t particularly like sweet recipes, I made a spicy version instead without the jackfruit and sugar. And in line with my (somewhat) healthy resolution, I also baked them instead of frying so they are still crispy without the greasiness of an average spring roll. It was my first time making spring rolls, and I was surprised at how easy it was to make them. And they tasted so good that I had eaten half of them before I finished the photo shoot. Out of the kindness of my heart, I kept the other half for bae, but somehow – and I don’t know how – I ended up eating most of his own too. Sorry.

I lied. I’m only sorry I didn’t eat them all. *evil laugh*

Enjoy!
