Tomato Bisque

The Best Tomato Bisque Recipe, Tomato Recipes

This Tomato Bisque Soup recipe is one of my absolute favourites!  I don’t dine out very often, but when I do, if there is a Tomato Bisque on the menu I always order it.  Tomato Bisque is probably one of my most favourite soups to eat.

I decided it was time I create a recipe for Tomato Bisque myself.  I always plant as many tomato plants in my garden that I can fit, so in the fall when there is an abundance of tomatoes, this soup gets made a lot!  In fact, last fall I made a my roasted tomato recipe and threw them in the freezer so I could enjoy by beloved Tomato Bisque all winter long with produce from my garden.  And if you know me, or have been following my blog for a while, you probably know how strongly I feel about high quality food!  Anything you purchase from the grocery store doesn’t even come close to homegrown produce in terms of nutrients, and flavour.

If you want to kick this Tomato Bisque recipe up a notch, you can add some cooked, crumbled bacon to it.  It really takes it to the next level in deliciousness.

Enjoy this recipe, and with garden season just around the corner I highly recommend adding some edible plants to your yard this year!  Even if you don’t have a garden/flowerbed, you can easily grow your own tomatoes and herbs in a pot on your deck.   I absolutely love being able to walk out my patio door and have fresh vegetables and fruits to add to my meals!

1.  Mince garlic and set aside.

2.  Melt butter in a medium sized soup pot, and add onions and carrots.  Cook for 8 minutes, or until onions are translucent.  Add garlic, sea salt, pepper, and basil.  Stir and cook 2 minutes longer until garlic is nice and fragrant.

3.  Add roasted tomatoes and broth.  Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.  Turn heat to low, cover pot, and simmer for 30 minutes.

4.  Remove soup form heat, and let cool slightly.  Puree soup in batches in a blender, and return to soup pot.  Stir in cream, and serve immediately.

*You can adjust the thickness of the soup to your liking by adding additional filtered water to thin it out if needed.
