Cheesy Eggplant Soup

Posted on

Yes, I made soup a few days ago and it was 70 degrees out. Well, it’s not supposed to be this warm yet and that makes it acceptable. You could always eat this soup luke warm and then you wouldn’t break out in a sweat while slurping down soup in the 70 degree weather! This soup was quite hearty but when you were finished with a bowl you didn’t feel like you had a log in your stomach. It was really nicely balanced. The recipe went like this…

 

Adapted from here

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium sized eggplant, peeled and chopped in small cubes
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 to 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion, finely diced
  • 3/4 can (28 ounces) of crushed tomatoes with basil
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup water
