Plantain Lumpia

A friend from work made banana lumpia for me a few years ago and they were so delicious I still think about them from time to time. I’m not a fan of desserts but these weren’t overly sweet and had a crispy outside and soft inside. I don’t have banana at the moment. But I happen to have lumpia wrappers in the freezer and 3 semi-ripe plantains. So I’m going to try making these into plantain lumpia.

  • Lumpia wrappers
  • Plantains
  • Brown sugar
  • Frying Oil

Cut the plantains into thirds. Then cut the pieces into quarters, length-wise.

I actually only made a few with sugar. The rest I made plain and they can be enjoyed with ketchup and sriracha.
