Stir in the tomato paste and dried oregano, allowing them to cook for about a minute.

Add the chopped eggplant, zucchini, bell pepper, and chicken broth.

Stir well to combine all the ingredients.

Bring the soup to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low and let it cook for about 15-20 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender. Taste the soup and adjust the seasoning if needed.
