    Donut Chef's Note:

    Easy to put together, easy to eat! Just serve with a loaf of crusty bread, and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese, and you have a winner! You can substitute fresh tomatoes for the canned.

      DH is dieting and a bowl of this delicious soup when he got home from work held him until his low-fat, low-carb dinner was ready. I've never made a minestrone with eggplant & am glad to have tried this one. The eggplant (peeled) gives another interesting texture but doesn't overpower in flavor. I used fresh tomatoes and added some extra water and salt It's an ideal recipe: it both tastes great AND is good for you. Thanks Donut Chef.
