Endless ways to prepare eggplant soup

Eggplants absorb a lot of flavor, so you can make them particularly tasty if you prepare them carefully. Don't add too many herbs, or you might confuse the taste. Eggplants go well with zucchini, tomatoes, and bell peppers. When combined with chili or curry, or mixed with coconut cream, you can create an extraordinary flavor.
