Turon Pie

Labels: , , , ,

I call this the lazy woman's turon. I was craving for saba turon but didn't want to fry in this heat. I just brushed light olive oil on both sides of 2 pieces of spring roll wrapper, placed them on a small pie plate, filled it with thinly sliced saba banana, brown sugar, and chopped langka (jackfruit). Then I baked it in my toaster oven for about 10 to 12 minutes. I was more than satisfied with my baked turon and I didn't have to heat up a liter of oil. I'll try this with apple too as it's healthier without all the butter in a regular apple pie crust and because I love the sweet crispy wrapper.

Green Mango Ice Cream

Labels: , ,

Several Filipino food blogs have been raving about the Filipino green mango ice cream topped with sweet bagoong sauce. I love green mango shake and sorbet and ice cold green mango slices topped with bagoong (salty fermented micro shrimps) has been my favorite since forever. But shrimp/fish flavor and ice cream? Thanks, but I think I'll pass.

Bucatini with Eggplant and Fresh Tomatoes

Labels: , , , ,

I have so much fresh tomatoes from my backyard I've been snacking on them everyday. They are very sweet and yummy sprinkled with a little sea salt and of course they are excellent in pasta dishes. There is no comparison in flavor with the canned stuff.

Crispy Sweet Potato Fries

Labels: , , ,

I recently discovered from here that it's possible to make crispy sweet potato fries, either baked or deep fried. I like that their edges are crispy but tender inside. I also loved the savory sauce that was provided but having a sweet tooth, I prefer to have them with sweet coconut sauce (thin matamis na bao). I've eaten this combination before with purple sweet potato fries and I really loved them then. I still do.
