The combination of eggplant and coconut milk makes for a flavorful soup with a delicate blend of sweet and savory. It is creamy, and rich and balances nicely with the depth of ginger, turmeric, and garlic. The best part about this recipe is how easy it is to prepare and how fast it cooks (only 20 minutes). This healing soup is the perfect comfort food that can be enjoyed any time of the day.
