Eggplant Sauce (Sarsang Talong) Recipe

Ingredients :

    • 14 oz (400 g) slender Asian eggplants (about 2 eggplants)
    • 2 tablespoons Filipino vinegar (suka) or apple cider vinegar
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Method :

    1. Grill the eggplants whole with the skins intact, turning them several times so that the skins are charred and the flesh is tender, about 15 minutes. Halve the eggplants and scoop out the flesh. Mash the flesh with a fork until smooth.
    2. Mix the eggplant flesh with the rest of the ingredients in a bowl. Serve in small bowls as a side dish. Keeps in the refrigerator for a week.
