eggplant omelet [tortang talong-meatless] {paleo}

Tortang talong (eggplant omelet) is usally made with sauteed ground pork. But I made this really quick version because I didn't have pork and I had my husband throw the eggplant on the grill while he grilled chicken sausages.

 Mommy's Lunch:
Eggplant Omelet, 
quick tomato salad (EVOO, splash of vinegar, salt and pepper)
Packed in an EasyLunchBox

Eggplant Omelet (Tortang Talong)

-chinese eggplant (long and slender, not the fat ones)
-1egg (more if using more than 1 eggplant)
-salt & pepper (to taste)

Grill or roast chinese eggplant (long and slender) until tender.
Peel off the chard skin and mash the eggplant flat while keeping the stem.
Beat the eggs, add salt and pepper.
Heat coconut oil (or preferred frying oil).
Place the eggplant flat on the pan and pour the egg on top. 
Flip the omelet when one side has browned. 

Filipinos typically serve this with rice.

Daddy's turn!

Mommy's and Daddy's Lunch:   Grilled pork chops over green beans grilled red potatoes and grapes

I don't really care if my husband gets teased about his lunches. I don't think he does either. He rarely eats lunches, so when he was participating in the Crossfit Open last March, he needed to maintain a healthier eating routine, I was a little more giddier than he was to pack his lunches too. I didn't take many pictures of them, since he didn't care much for presentation, but with EasyLunchBoxes, it was easy to arrange the food in different compartments.

Last weekend, he participated in a mud/foam run in Chicago with the some of the athletes at our Crossfit box. It was a 2.5 hour bus ride each way, so he needed to pack lunch and a post-race dinner.  Of course I jumped on that opportunity to pack his lunches too. :)
