Roasted vegetables and a bold harissa sauce provide intense flavor to this Moroccan-inspired soup. Garnish with easy-to-prepare Parmesan Crisps. Photo credit: Joanne Bruno from Eats Well with Others.
6 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese
1 large red bell pepper, roasted, peeled and seeded
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Caraway Seed , ground
1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Gourmet Collection Ground Coriander Seed
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon McCormick® Red Pepper, Crushed
1 large eggplant, peeled and diced (1-inch)
1 medium tomato, seeded and coarsely chopped
1/2 cup sliced leeks, white part only
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon McCormick® Garlic Powder
1/8 teaspoon McCormick® Black Pepper, Coarse Ground
2 cups vegetable stock
2 tablespoons heavy cream
2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro
For the Parmesan Crisps, preheat oven to 400°F. Sprinkle cheese into 8 circles, 1 1/2 to 2 inches in diameter, on parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan on wire rack. Set aside.
For the Honey-Harissa Sauce, place all ingredients in blender or food processor; cover. Blend or process on high speed until almost smooth. Set aside.
For the Roasted Eggplant Bisque, reduce oven temperature to 375°F. Toss eggplant, tomato, leeks, onion, oil, garlic powder and pepper in large bowl. Spread in single layer on foil-lined shallow baking pan.
Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until softened. With center part of cover removed to let steam escape, puree 1/2 the vegetable mixture and 1 cup of the stock in blender on high speed until smooth. Pour bisque into large saucepan. Repeat with remaining vegetable mixture and stock.
Stir in 2 tablespoons of the Honey-Harissa Sauce, cream, honey and salt. Bring to simmer, stirring occasionally. Pour bisque into 4 soup bowls. Top each with 1 teaspoon of the Honey-Harissa Sauce, cilantro and 2 Parmesan Crisps.
Test Kitchen Tip: Store leftover Honey-Harissa Sauce in refrigerator. Serve with grilled meats, or toss with pasta or couscous.
