A Veggie Venture is having a Soup's On theme month. So, in that vein, here is my favorite soup recipe. Okay it's not really a recipe, more a list of ingredients, but it always tastes great. Except for the time I forgot to add onions and garlic, so it was kind of flavor-deficient.
Not Quite Ratatouille Soup
2 Asian eggplants/ 1 American eggplant
1 large onion
1 big can tomatoes
1-1.5 c beans (your choice), cooked
1-2 T minced garlic
2 bouillon cubes/ equivalent volume stock
oregano and basil to taste
water to cover vegetables in pot
I "saute" the onions in the liquid from the bouillon until they are clear, then add the other ingredients. Sometimes I add bell peppers of various colors, if they look good at the market. Just bring it to a boil and let it simmer "till it's done".
