  3. Add Italian seasonings, thyme, tomato paste, and vinegar and saute until veggies are coated, ~1 minute.
  4. Add tomatoes (including liquid) and stock. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes to allow the flavors to come together.

  6. Taste and season soup with some salt, pepper, and a splash of vinegar if needed.
  7. Ladle soup into bowls. Serve with carrots and baba ganoush (for dipping) on the side. Enjoy!
