Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
1 medium eggplant, sliced
1 tablespoon of ghee or butter
1 pound of ground pork
2 teaspoons sea salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried fennel seeds
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
¼ cup of canned coconut crème

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Slice eggplant in ½” discs and bake on a grill pan until it is soft with grill lines, about 10 minutes per side.
Add ghee or butter to a skillet place on the stove set to medium-low heat.
Add ground pork and season with sea salt, black pepper, garlic powder, dried fennel seeds and smoked paprika.
Sauté and minced with a wooden spoon until the pork has cooked through, about 10 minutes.
Add coconut crème and almond butter and stir together until very creamy.
Remove from the heat and serve with grilled eggplant and sliced cheddar cheese, garnishing your plate with any fresh herbs from the fridge.
Store any leftovers in a glass container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
