Endless ways to prepare eggplant soup

Eggplants absorb a lot of flavour, 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 soya cream or coconut, you can create an extraordinary flavour.
