Tomato Basil Bisque

Posted on February 10, 2013 at 5:35 PM

This fresh tomato bisque is one of my all time favorite simple sophisticated recipes. A bisque by definition is a smooth, creamy, highly seasoned soup and that is exactly what this consists of.




Serves 5


Ingedients:

 

  • 1 Cup Chopped Onion
  • 2 Cloves Chopped Garlic
  • 3 Cups Chopped Organic Tomatoes
  • 1 TB Organic Tomato Paste
  • .5 Cup Water
  • 1/4 Chopped Basil
  • 2 Basil Leaves
  • 1 Tbsp Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Butter
  • .5 Cup Heavy Cream
  • Salt + Fresh Cracked Pepper


Directions:

 

In a medium saucepot melt butter and sautee onion and garlic until soft. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, water, sugar and basil. Simmer on low heat for 30 minutes, stir occasionally.

 

Allow to cool. Puree 1/3 of the mixture at a time in blender until smooth. Return to saucepot. It is important this mixture has cooled before you add the cream. Slowly stir-in cream and simmer on low heat until heated through. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with basil leaves and or creme fraiche and serve.
