Cut your eggplant and bake it till it’s soft, brownish and ready. The pieces don’t need to get mushy or become dry. Keep an eye on the oven. You can add garlic before baking or if you like your soup to be more spicy, add some fresh one at the last stage of blending.
Boil your potato in a stock but do not pour out the liquids. We will use it for the soup later.
Mix together your eggplants, potato, lemon juice, milk, salt, pepper, garlic (that was baked or fresh one). Blend well. Slowly pour liquid in. That’s it!
Add some lemon peel on top, drizzle some olive oil and serve.
