This week Joan’s event A Culinary Tour Around the World is taking us to The Philippines.  I google searched for some vegan Philippo recipes, since I am fasting and I decided to make Turons which are Sweet fried Banana Spring Rolls and are snacks sold in sidewalks.  The original recipe was made with spring roll wrappers but unfortunately as I could not find any,  I decided to make them the Greek way, with phyllo.

I do not know how the original ones taste but these were perfect.   I ate one with some icing sugar and one with honey and walnuts.  My daughter and husband who are not strictly fasting, ate theirs with whipping cream and merenda, which is similar to nutella.

Turons – Vegan

Preparation time:  10 minutes

Cooking time:  10 minutes

Serves:  6



Bananas, cut lengthwise



Phyllo, cut in the middle



Dark brown sugar






Sunflower oil, for brushing



Sunflower oil, for deep frying



Cut each phyllo in the middle.


Mix sugar and cinnamon.


Place a sliced banana on the top side of the phyllo and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of sugar and cinnamon.



Fold each side and then wrap it to seal.  Brush the end of the phyllo with oil and fold.


In the meantime, heat oil in a skillet and fry the wrapped bananas on both sides, until it’s golden brown.  Remove on paper towels to drain excess oil.


Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve while still warm and the phyllo is crunchy.
