Still making lots of soup in the Arnold house, today we experimented with eggplant, made possible by a friend’s garden bounty. Somehow all my soups lately are orange. What can I say? It’s a great color. And yummy and super satisfying.
Carrot and Eggplant Soup
* 8 carrots, sliced into chunks
* 4 Japanese eggplants, sliced into chunks
* 1 onion, chopped
* 6 cups broth (veggie or beef)
* 2 tbsp coconut oil
* 2 tsp turmeric
* 2 tsp coriander
* 1tbsp fennel seed
* 5 cloves garlic
* 1 can coconut milk
Put the oil in a large pot. Pop everything in the pot. Bring to a boil and simmer until veggies are soft. Add coconut milk. With an immersion blender, blend it smooth.
