Recipe: Tomato Bisque

Here is an easy, rich recipe you can put together with items that might already be in your larder.  Served with toasted cheese and chutney sandwiches (my new favorite), it makes a warm supper for cold evenings.

Tomato Bisque

1 TBS Butter
Saute on medium heat until translucent:
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped

1 quart canned tomatoes
1/2 cup of red wine
pinch of italian herbs, salt and pepper

Let simmer for about 5 minutes

(Optional) Add:
1 cup of broth 

Simmer (do not boil) for another 10 minutes

Puree with immersion blender

1/2 cup of heavy cream

Warm through, and enjoy!


  1. Great recipe - definitely going to try it. I had an interesting tomato bisque recently it was flavored with spices one would find in Indian food - cumin, a touch of a mild sweet curry powder and cilantro. It was amazing, I am going to be making it but I think its going to need some tweaking :). - Ushan
