Linda shared a few Filipino recipes in the Gilmore Park Church Community Kitchen. Linda loves to cook. She used to do catering for parties but she stopped doing so after she had trouble with her hand. Perhaps due to too much heavy lifting while doing the catering.
The first Filipino dish is called Eggplant Torta or Eggplant Omelet. This is really great as it is crunchy on the crust and the eggplant inside is very tender. We should have leave the cap intact so that it is more visible as an eggplant like those I saw in Filipino groceries store.
- 6 long eggplants
- 6 eggs, beaten slightly
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- Panko breadcrumbs
- Garlic Plus seasoning (from Costco)
Prep time: 30 minutes; Cook time: 20 minutes; Serves 6

This is my most favorite eggplant dish. Its so easy to make and its very tasty. What I usually do with the eggplant is roast them right on the gas stovetop. I let the skin burn a little bit to get that smokey flavour. I just use egg though and nothing else to fry the roasted eggplant.
I’ve had this style many times, and I’m really curious and interested to try the version with panko.
I’ve never had eggplant this way before and will try it. Thank you Linda for sharing and Chow Times for posting! I’m thinking of using roasted peppers instead of eggplants too.
Unfortunately if you use peppers,you wont get the texture that makes this dish so good,But its worth a try
What’s in Garlic Plus? We don’t have that.

Thanks Ben! Garlic, red pepper and cornmeal — that’s odd. The cornmeal must be ground really finely to disappear in cooking! I guess I can use less of just garlic powder.
Hey, we went to Bobby’s Hawaiian again yesterday. We got two orders of the ribs, but we skipped the fried rice! Had a graduation dinner there and we thought of you.
LOL! That reminds us to start writing the Portland series.
