Paprika

Garlic powder 

Ginger powder 

Salt

Pepper 

Chilli flakes 

Chimichurri spice or substitute with garlic, coriander and ground nutmeg  (step into your closest Woolworths or Grocery store to find the chimichurri)

0.5 cup grated mozarella

125ml cream

Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees celcius. Take  your egg plant and sliced it into thin slices. Drizzle olive oil onto an oven dish. Placed layer of sliced egg plant. Sprinkled with salt,  pepper, paprika, chilli flakes, garlic, Chimichurri spice and ginger powder. Drizzle about 4 tablespoons of cream, top with grated cheese.
