Roasted Eggplant Soup - 0 Points

Back home and back in the kitchen! 'Tis the season for fresh vegetables. Nothing says Farmer's Market to me like a big pot of soup filling the kitchen with the earthy scents of summer. 

Roasted Eggplant Soup, adapted from Homemade Soups by Sunset Books
1 large eggplant
1 small onion
3 cups water
3 cubes chicken stock
2 tbs lemon
salt and pepper
1 tbs chipotle sauce

1. Place eggplant and unpeeled onion in a brownie sized baking pan. Bake in a 400F oven until vegetables are very tender (about 75 minutes). Let cool, then peel.
2. Blend vegetables, a portion at a time, in a food processor or blender until smooth. Transfer vegetable mixture to a 2 to 3-quart pan and blend in stock. Bring to boil over high heat; add lemon juice, chipotle sauce and season to taste with salt and pepper.
3. Garnish with chipotle sauce.
4. Yields 10, 0 point servings

  14. I have never heard of eggplant soup, very interesting. I suppose it has a creamy texture. Why 0 points?

  15. Hey Angela :) Yea, eggplants are a bit of a rarity here. I've only seen them in the supermarket twice since moving to Cayman 5 years ago. I really only use one of the grocery stores so for all I know the other two have eggplant and I'm just missing it. It may be too long for it to travel because most of our food comes by ship.
