Spicy Soup with Grilled Vegetables

The vegetables used in this spicy soup recipe are grilled first, to soften them and release their flavors. Eggplant, zucchini and bell peppers all grill delightfully and they will take on a smoky flavor if you use a charcoal grill which complements the overall spicy flavor of the finished soup.

This recipe for outdoor grilled vegetables is suitable for everyone and if you prefer a little more or a little less spice, you can alter the amount of chili powder used in the recipe. The combination of fresh vegetables, spices, lemon juice, and garlic makes this soup a delicious lunch or a tasty appetizer. It is nice served with warm bread on the side.

Soup recipes vary with regard to their ingredients. Some will have just the veggies themselves and a couple of other ingredients whereas others might include more backup ingredients to add gentle accents to the overall flavor. This soup is somewhere in the middle and the ingredients are not going to battle for supremacy in this dish.

The turmeric, lemon juice, garlic, curry paste, chili and paprika all work together harmoniously to flatter the grilled vegetables and turn this from a plain vegetable soup into something which is spiced without being too piquant, and flavorful without having any clashing tastes. This is a fusion dish with Middle Eastern flavors, so if you are in the mood for something deliciously different you might like to try this recipe for yourself.
