This was a great soup. It is thickened with roasted eggplant and finished off with a spicy ' harissa'. Not for the weak of palate but a great soup full of exotic flavors. The finishing touch is a stick of cimammon which gives it a great aftertaste. I adde some chick peas and made some garlic croutons rubbed with garlic. A great soup and the squash was a delight.
