Roasted Eggplant Soup
2 medium eggplants
1. Preheat broiler. Cut each eggplant in half lengthwise and place on oiled baking sheet, skin side up. Rub skin with 1 tablespoon oil and place under broiler. Broil until skins are charred and blistered, 10 to 15 minutes. Allow to cool. Peel eggplant and cut into chunks.
2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
4 medium cloves garlic, minced
2 cups onion, chopped
8 cups stock
1 6-ounce can tomato paste
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves or
1/4 cup dried basil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2. Heat remaining tablespoon oil in a large skillet. Add garlic and onion and sauté until softened, about 10 minutes. Add eggplant and cook another 5 minutes. Place chicken stock in a large, heavy pot over medium heat. Add sautéed vegetables, tomato paste, basil, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and simmer about 15 minutes. Puree soup in batches in a food processor or blender. Return soup to pot and simmer gently until heated through.
