One of my best friends in Germany only commented: "Once a Filipina, always a Filpina." I wanted to object but then realised that that he was on to something. Filipinos loooove meat and the Filipino cuisine is very Paleo compatible.
Animal protein such as beef, pork, goat and seafood is a pretty much a constant physical condition for a Filipino meal. If there wasn't any meat or seafood it was not ulam, not the main component of a meal. It would just be a side dish almost like rice. I remember sometime in the 90's being at a Filipino birthday party and a suckling pig was delivered. By that time I was probably the only Vegetarian in the entire barrio.
Now that I'm literally back to my Filipino roots it's time to post my Paleo version of a the first Filipino comfort dish I vegetarianized. We'll start with the ever so simple and beautiful tortang talong aka aubergine omelette. And we'll be doing it puppy style: Easy, quick and absolutely edible.
Place in a bowl and season with salt, pepper, garlic powder and hot sauce.
Reduce heat to medium low and place aubergine fan carefully in still hot pan. Pour eggs over aubergine.
