1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 medium eggplant, peeled and, cut in 1/2-inch dice
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried red chili flakes
3 cups canned crushed tomatoes in puree
4 cups water
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
10 fresh basil leaves, chopped
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
3 cups french or italian bread cubes, toasted or stale

Heat olive oil in a large nonreactive saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions, bell peppers and eggplant; sauté 2 minutes. Add the garlic, oregano and chili flakes and continue to sauté until all is softened. Add the tomatoes and water and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer 35 to 40 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add the Parmesan cheese, chopped basil, vinegar and bread cubes. Allow the bread cubes to soak into the soup and thicken the mixture before serving, about 10 minutes.


this soup is AWESOME!!! My son is studying to be a chef and he said this will be a regular on his menu when he opens his own bistro.
