Cajun Spiced Cheesy Aubergines | Tasty Party Ideas…

I admit I had another post for
today – all ready and decked up. But I had to change it for these yummilicious
Cajun Spiced Cheesy Aubergines that I made within minutes of reading
Suma’s recipe.. She  called it Eggplant Pizza, I made one tweak and served it
to the husband, who relished it a lot. He’s into a lot of healthy eating,
 and this flourless bake like the Veg Au Gratin ,
was very well received. Thanks for the inspiration- that must be the quickest
turnaround for my bookmarks, and am sure we shall make it often for all of us
are eggplant lovers back home..


There is no prep required, all you need is a 15-17 minutes clear
time and the right ingredients. By the time the oven is heated, the veggies
are prepped and popped into the oven. You dont really need to hover around for
they will be done within the time below. So, so waiting and only
devouring.. The cajun really added to the flavour and the texture of the snack was so appetising.
