eggplant soup (2)

 

עס איז אַפישאַלי ספּרינג אָבער משמעות, קיין איינער האט דערציילט די וועטער אַז! עס ס שוין קאַלט! זיכער, עס האָבן געווען אַ ביסל טעג פון וואַרעם וועטער און זוניק סקיעס אָבער דעמאָלט עס געץ קאַלט ווידער. אין פאַקט, די וועטער פאָרויסזאָגן זאגט שניי פֿאַר הייַנט בייַ נאַכט און מאָרגן!!

So even though my thoughts have turned to lighter dishes for Spring, my body is begging for more of the warm and hearty recipes that fed it all winter. אַוואַדע, soup is good all year round and that makes it a go-to no matter what the weather. It’s warming when it’s colder outside, it makes a great light dinner when the weather is warmer and it’s easy. Easy is always good.

Whenever I have an eggplant, I have to decide: eggplant fries? eggplant parm? grilled eggplant? eggplant burger? eggplant meatballs? There are so many choices!! This time, I made an eggplant soup!

This soup, my Italian Roasted Eggplant Bisque, is easy and comforting but also a little bit different and exotic. The flavor is rich with the roasted eggplant and tomatoes and warmed by the herbs and spices of garlic, קומין, and red pepper flakes. Oregano, thyme and basil give it a fresh taste and Italian aroma that is perfect for Spring.

The soup is made into a bisque by adding just 1/4 cup of non-dairy milk or cream. So Delicious Culinary Lite Coconut Milk would be my choice here.

My Italian Roasted Eggplant Bisque would be the perfect soup to serve your friends and family for Easter or Passover dinner. It’s light enough to be a starter course, creative enough to make a good impression on your guests and delicious enough to become a new favorite of yours and theirs. האַנאָע האָבן!

6 קלאָוועס פון קנאָבל

2 Tbs. מאַסלינע ייל

1 ציבעלע, chopped

1 tsp. דאַר טיים

1 tsp. ערד קומין

1 tsp. דאַר אָרעגאַנאָ

1 tsp. דאַר באַסיל

4 cups low sodium vegetable broth

¼ cup non-dairy milk or cream

קאָשער זאַלץ און פעפער צו טעם

Vegan grated parmesan cheese, for garnish

Fresh basil, diced tomato, for garnish

 

פּרעהעאַט די ויוון צו 425 דיגריז. On a large baking sheet, place the eggplant halves, the tomato halves and the garlic cloves. Brush the eggplant and tomatoes with oil. Roast the veggies for 45 minutes to an hour, until the veggies get soft and browned. Make sure to check on the garlic cloves from time to time so they don’t burn. Remove the veggies from the oven and let cool until you can handle them.

אין אַ גרויס פאַן, היץ 1 Tbs. of oil over medium high heat. לייג די ציבעלע און קאָכן פֿאַר 5 minutes until it softens and starts to brown. Scoop the eggplant meat out of the skin and add it to the pot. Add the tomatoes to the pot. Squeeze the garlic out from their skins and add them to the pot also. לייג די טיים, קומין, oregano and red pepper flakes. Toss to combine. Add the broth and bring the soup to a boil. Lower the heat and let simmer for 45 minutes to an hour. Turn off the heat and let the soup cool a bit.

Working in batches, puree the soup in a blender (make sure to only fill the blender half-way with soup and hold a dishtowel over the lid) until it is totally smooth. If you have an immersion blender, you can just blend the soup in the pot. Return the pureed soup to the pot. Add the milk or cream and bring the soup to a simmer. צייַט מיט זאַלץ און פעפער, to taste. Serve while hot and garnish with vegan grated parmesan cheese, fresh basil and diced tomato.
