Eggplant and Tomato Soup #soupswapday

My husband made this delicious soup for us last week and it will be a keeper for us.  Deep and delicious, this Eggplant and Tomato Soup only gets better and better over time. We added some roasted chicken to it to give it some protein and had it for dinner. 

I am celebrating National Soup Month with a group of bloggers. You can see all their posts if you go to our Pinterest Board.  You'll find things that go well with soup, too, such as bread, crackers and other goodies. Thank you Kate, for hosting us today!

We are big supper lovers in our house. We have soup once a week.  There is a group of us in our neighborhood who exchange soup and recipes via a private chat on Facebook. The food pictures can drive you crazy!

Enjoy this soup, it has a deep creamy flavor once blended, that is irresistible!!
