Tortang Talong (Filipino eggplant omelet)

How was everyone’s long weekend? Ours was a bit crappy. Nabol and I were sick for most of the Memorial Day break, but were able to rest and cook a couple of tasty dishes at home. Because we’re currently obsessed with all of Mark Weins travels, we decided to try a traditional recipe from the Philippines called Tortang Talong.

This eggplant omelet is super easy to make and just requires two ingredients: Chinese eggplants and eggs. Check out the video and the recipe. We hope you enjoy.

Tortang Talong - Ingredients:
  • 1-2 Chinese eggplants (1 per person depending on the size)
  • 1-2 Eggs, beaten (1 egg per eggplant)

Dipping sauce – Mix all ingredients to make sauce.
  • 1/3 Cup of soy sauce
