    For anyone trying to cut back on carbs, think of this aubergine sliders recipe as base-free pizzas. When baked, aubergines turn deliciously soft and nutty in texture. We’ve topped them with a stringy gruyere but any cheese you fancy will work, try salty crumbled Feta and some sliced black olives for a Greek twist or sliced buffalo tomatoes, basil and gooey mozzarella for an Italian influence.
