We are at the tail end of the Bahay Kubo Cooking Series!  Yay.  What I wanted to do is really highlight the Kamatis (Tomato) and the simplicity of everyday Filipino food.

There is this huge misconception about Filipino food. Contrary to popular belief we don’t eat lumpia or lechon every day. That’s party food. Our every day food is super simple.

Like this dish made with just 2 ingredients Kamatis (Tomato) and Itlog (Egg) is what my Mom made for us when she came home from work after a long ass day. The tomatoes are sprinkled with salt to make them sweat and then cooked down until it looks a bit saucy. At the end scrabbled eggs are added to stretch the meal into something hearty. That was it. That was the dinner.  Let’s Make it.

What Ingredients Do You Need To Make Ginisang Kamatis at Itlog?

Really, all you need are these 2 ingredients and some salt and olive oil.

2 Eggs, 5 Tomatoes on the vine, some salt in a marble container with a small wooden spoon.

Kamatis (Tomato) – In a Filipino pantry we have use lots of Kamatis (tomato).  It has various uses from a key souring agent in soups or as the base of a sauce for a stew.  In this recipe it’s the star.  I used 5 in this recipe.

Itlog (Egg) – Eggs!  They will add some heft to the meal and helps stretch out the Tomato into a real meal or (Ulam)  In this recipe I only use 2, but you can use more and add more tomatoes as well.

Let’s Make it!

To make Ginisang Kamatis at Itlog, start buy rough chopping the tomatoes into chunks.  Season it with some salt and put on medium heat.

Chopped Tomatoes with salt in a skillet.

After about 5 minutes the tomatoes will start to breakdown and become a little bit saucy.  Turn down the heat to low and cover for 5 minutes to further sweat out the tomatoes to release the juices.

Once the tomatoes have broken down add in the 2 eggs that have been scrambled.

Stir in the eggs until cooked and fully incorporated into the tomatoes.  You will see that the eggs start breaking down and it becomes more of a tomato scramble than an egg scramble.

Transfer the Ginisang Kamatis on a plate and have with rice or even crackers.  I finished with a little truffle oil, but that is totally optional.
