Eggplant Soup 

So here’s how this soup happened.  I was sent a eggplant in my weekly vegetable subscription box.   What should I make? Sure, I can make my Veggie Nuggets but I wanted something more comforting for a Fall night.

But enter this 1 beautiful eggplant that was just sitting on my kitchen counter.   It was tearing me apart looking at it and  not knowing what to do.   Then one night I made my Roasted Cauliflower Soup, a family favorite.   As I was cleaning up the bowls, I walked by this eggplant in the kitchen and a idea sparked.

Could I roast this eggplant with other vegetables to create a creamy soup? You bet I can!  Roasted Eggplant Soup was born!  And now it’s one of my favorite meals!

  3. Cook at 425 degrees for 40 minutes, flipping the eggplant at the 20 minute mark.

Not only are we roasting eggplant in this recipe, but we are adding chopped carrots and garlic too.  

My family loves roasted vegetables, in fact we eat them a few nights a week.  Roasted vegetables are the perfect addition to your diet, and a easy way to get picky eaters to eat more veggies!

Immersion Blender Recipe

After your vegetables are finished roasting, you’re going to start making the soup on top of the stove.    You’ll melt flour and butter together, and then add broth and milk.  Once that’s mixed and creamy, throw in your roasted vegetables.

Now grab your immersion blender and put it on low, and slowly blend the soup together,  blending all the chunks of eggplant and carrots completely.  If you don’t have a handheld immersion blender, you can also transfer the soup to a blender.  Be careful if you do this as the soup is hot!
