"Burgers are good. But veggies are better. What if we mix them together? We have a number of different Filipino versions of veggie burger patties. Turning eggplants into a healthy patty is actually easy. In cooking tortang talong, we usually grill the eggplants and then take off the peelings. In this version, we will simply boil them and peel half of the eggplants. We also need to let them cool down first before peeling and chopping them to avoid burning our hands."
