Tortang talong, the Filipino version of an eggplant omelet, has a meaty, filling texture, which makes it a solid vegetarian alternative. It’s often eaten for lunch and simple dinners, but also served for heavy breakfast.
The flavor of this dish will depend on the way you prepare the eggplant. Grilling it imparts a layer of smokiness to your dish; steaming it on the stovetop yields a sweet, milder flavor. Adding Barrio Fiesta Bagoong Sweet Chili to your egg batter will give your final dish a sweet, mildly spicy kick.
