Chicken Soup With Spinach, Eggplant & Tomato

Chicken Soup With Spinach, Eggplant & Tomato created by kelly in TO

This super-foods-packed soup helps the body recuperate and satisfies the soul. David makes this for me after the flu, a nasty migraine, or even just a tough day. Great on blustery days, too!

ingredients

directions

  • Place eggplant in a large colander and sprinkle lightly with salt. Let stand for 30 minutes (sweating the eggplant). Rinse thoroughly to remove salt and drain well.
  • In a large non-stick pot, heat 2 Tbsp olive oil and garlic over medium heat, being careful not to burn the garlic (approx. 2 minutes).
  • Add eggplant to pot and saute for 12 minutes.
  • Add onion; saute until translucent.
  • Add diced tomatoes (including liquid), dried thyme, and salt & pepper. Bring to boil. Then, simmer for 30 minutes stirring often and gently to break up tomatoes.
  • Meanwhile, place thawed spinach into colander and use your hands to squeeze out any excess water; set aside.
  • Add chicken broth, chicken, and spinach. Simmer 30 minutes.
  • Serve with crusty French bread.
  • NOTES: Eggplant is a thirsty vegetable and will soak up olive oil when sauteing. Do not be afraid to add extra oil as needed. If using store-bought chicken broth, then reduce to 4 cups and add 2 cups water.

    This is a Great Soup! any time of the year. I make mine really close to your recipe. I add 3 TBLS of rice to boost it up abit. Other than that we have the same thing going. I made your's just like ya said and it was great tasting and filling. I also use all homemade or grown myself stuff, including the chicken. Just makes it that much more special. Thanks for a Great Posting. Jimmbob.....
