Fancy Smancy! Creamy Tomato Bisque Soup.

I'm a HUGE fan of tomato-basil or tomato bisque soup. Bisque is just a fancy name for this soup. The taste is to die for. And this recipe fits the bill.

Creamy Tomato Basil Bisque 

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 50 minutes


1 large yellow onion, chopped
1 sweet red pepper, chopped
2 (14 1/2 oz) cans diced tomatoes
2 medium plum tomatoes, chopped
2/3 cup basil, chopped
3 tbs sugar
1 1/2 cups cream
Salt and pepper


1. Cook onion and red pepper in butter in a stew pot until soft.

2. Add diced tomatoes and fresh tomatoes. Stir and reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 40 minutes.

3. Remove from heat. Add sugar, basil, salt and pepper and stir.

4. With an immersion blender, blend ingredients until smooth. While blending slowly add cream.

5. Return to heat until heated through. Do not boil. And you're DONE! Yep, it's that easy!!

Serve with a dollop of sour cream and Parmesan bread if you like.

Enjoy my Friends!
