These tasty banana spring rolls will give you a taste of the tropics!

Close your eyes and imagine the following scene: You're sitting under a sunshade made of palm branches, the sound of the ocean in the background, a gentle breeze in the air. You're sipping down cocktails and snacking on tropical treats. Up for a tropical vacation now? Even if you don't have enough money or vacation time for it, you can still have a taste of the tropics right at home. The four ingredients in this recipe will transport you to a tropical island in no time.

You'll need the following:

  • 2 bananas
  • ca. 3/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 8 sheets of rice paper
  • Vegetable oil

Here's what you do:

  1. Peel the bananas, chop them in half and place the halves lengthwise in columns.
  2. Coat the pieces in brown sugar and then wrap them up tightly in rice paper.
  3. Dab a few drops of water onto the corner of the rice paper to seal it.
  4. Fry the rolls in a pan with vegetable oil. For this, all you need to do is cover the bottom of the pan with a thin layer of oil.
  5. Once a side has turned golden brown, it's time to flip the roll over. Sprinkle a bit of brown sugar on top while pan frying it to give it an extra caramel aroma.

Let the spring rolls dry off a bit on some paper towels and enjoy them just like that, with some vanilla sauce or with a scoop of ice cream. Even just snacking on these during a staycation will still give you a nice sunny summer vacation feeling.
