Ingredients (makes ± 4 to 6 slices)
1 large eggplant
2 tbsp. truffle oil
± 4 / 6 tbsp. tomato frito (or passata)
75 gram manchego (or other type firm cheese), grated
1 tsp. fennel seeds

Place on an ovensheet lined with parchment paper and grill the slices for 5 to 10 minutes on each site until golden brown and soft.
