Roasted Aubergine and Tomato Soup with Parmesan Crouton - one of the most tastiest vegetables combined with the lovely natural sweetness of fresh tomatoes in this Amazing Soup, perfectly completed with some crispy Parmesan Croutons, what more could one ask for.
Aubergine (Eggplant) is definitely up there as one of my favourite speed foods. When roasted it has a lovely texture and flavour and is delicious in a variety of different dishes, such as curries, rice, pasta etc.
This Roasted Aubergine and Tomato Soup are super easy to make. Just add the bulk of the ingredients to a roasting dish and roast in the oven till softened to bring out those lovely flavours of the vegetables and then all that's left to do is combine them with the stock and remaining ingredients to blend into a delicious smooth soup.
As it is, this Roasted Aubergine and Tomato Soup is totally syn free, but I like to take it to a whole other level, by serving it topped with some amazingly crispy Parmesan Toast Croutons. Seriously a mouthful of soup with one of those croutons is like a flavour explosion in your mouth.
There are so many other variations you can make on this too, serve with just a little-grated cheese on top, or some seasoned chickpeas, shredded protein like chicken or sausage is also delicious or you could even drizzle with a little light coconut milk (for a few syns) or fat-free yoghurt.
Hey, you can even use this Roasted Aubergine and Tomato Soup as a sauce over chicken, or stirred through some pasta. Endless possibilities or different meals you can make. I love recipes were they can be adapted like that.
To blend the soup so it's lovely and smooth. I use my Nutri Ninja Blender with Auto IQ. This blender is amazing. The auto IQ technology feature, mean it blends to a set pattern depending on what it is you are making. There is also an optional add-on for a food processor bowl, which is perfect for chopping and grating vegetables.
Any blender, including a stick immersion blender will work for blending this Roasted Aubergine and Tomato Soup.

This soup is wonderful. I served it with a dollop of fat free fromage frais & potato wedges. It would also make great pasta sauce.
Linda Squelch says
How many tablespoon for balsamic vinegar?
Shevy (Slimming Eats) says
Just the one tablespoon
Absolutely fantastic soup - another triumph, Siobhan. I'm the only one who eats aubergine so I halved the ingredients. I still have enough for 3 decent portions. Will definitely make again ... unless I do the spicy version, which is also VERY tempting!
