Heat a drizzle of oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Add the carrot and cook until soft, 6 mins. Stir in the lamb mince and cinnamon stick. Cook for 5-6 mins, until the lamb has browned (drain away any excess fat). Add the chopped tomatoes then season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Simmer until thick and tomatoey, 15-20 mins. Stir occasionally. Preheat your grill to high.

Meanwhile, arrange the aubergine slices in a single layer on a lined baking tray with a drizzle of oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Grill for 8-9 mins on each side. Remove from the grill and leave to the side (leave the grill on). TIP: The aubergine slices should be browned and soft. If they aren’t, grill them for a little longer. If they are getting brown too quickly, turn the heat down a little.

When the lamb mixture is nice and thick, discard the cinnamon stick then pour into an ovenproof dish. Lay the aubergine on top and spoon over the crème fraîche. Spread the crème fraîche with the back of the spoon and sprinkle over the cheese.
