Eggplant is a go-to ingredient for me. It is such a versatile food and can be used in almost any course. It bursts with flavors, regardless of whether it is roasted, baked, or sauteed. The eggplant used in this recipe is no exception. Roasting the eggplant with chickpeas, onions and a blend of cumin, nutmeg and sea salt resulted in a fabulous, aromatic set of flavors and smells...I think I hit it big with this soup. The flavors flow together so perfectly and in such cohesion that I was momentarily dazed, unsure of whether this soup was too much. I ate a second bite and the smells flooded my nose, first the eggplant, than the chickpeas. A bit of lemon too. The tahini added to the roasted flavor of the vegetables perfectly, accentuating the already present Lebanese feel. I quickly decided I couldn't get enough. Served piping hot, with freshly grated aged cheddar and a large slice of homemade french bread, I hope this soup hits it big with you too.
