Total Time 1 hour 20 minutes
Servings 9 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 eggplant, peeled and diced
  • 4 plum tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 3 bell peppers, red, yellow or orange
  • 3 zucchini, sliced in circles
  • 2 onions, sliced in half
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 32 ounces low sodium vegetable broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2-3 fresh thyme sprigs, or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375⁰ F.

  2. Place eggplant in a colander, sprinkle with salt to remove any bitter taste. Cover the colander with a dish towel or paper towel then place a heavy object on top of it and place it in the sink for about 15 minutes. Dry the eggplant with a dish towel or paper towel, and set aside.

  3. On a parchment-lined baking sheet, arrange plum tomatoes, bell peppers, zucchini, eggplant, and onions on a baking sheet in a single layer. Drizzle with the olive oil and sea salt. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until eggplant and bell peppers have a slight char on their skins. Once done, remove from oven and set aside.

  4. In a large pot, add vegetable broth, water, and roasted vegetables. Cook over medium heat for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. When done, remove soup from heat and place in a blender. Puree well, and serve. If desired, garnish with thyme.
