eggplant omelet [tortang talong-meatless] {paleo}

Friday, September 20, 2013

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)
pears

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.

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

We (Daddy+Mommy) started the Lurong Living Paleo Challenge this week. It's a challenge where we can earn points by our diet, performance in WODs, goal-setting, etc. So adult lunches will be Paleo, gluten-free, grain-free, soy-free, and dairy free. I will miss my rice and soy sauce, but it's only 8 weeks! I'm looking forward to the discipline and trying out new recipes in the next 8 weeks.  Wish us luck!

Mommy's Lunch:
Chicken Sausage 
Grilled zucchini drizzled w/olive oil & dried Italian herbs
sliced tomato
peach
nuts (hazelnuts/cashews/almonds)
