Ingredients
  • 3 lbs eggplant halved lengthwise
  • 5 medium tomatoes halved and cored
  • 2 tbsp olive oil plus more for vegetables
  • 1 head garlic about ¼-inch cut off top to expose cloves
  • 1 medium onion chopped

  • 2 cans (14 oz each) low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tsp kosher salt

  2. Meanwhile in a large pot, heat oil over medium-low heat. Add onion and cook until softened, 10 to 12 minutes. Stir in tomato paste and cook 2 minutes. Add eggplant and tomatoes. Squeeze roasted garlic from skins into vegetables; stir to combine. Stir in broth, salt and pepper; bring to a simmer and cook 5 minutes. Purèe using an immersion blender or a food processor.
