John tried tomato bisque for the first time and LOVED it. Of course, I knew I could make it easily at home, so I tried it.
To start, I sauteed some lightly crushed garlic in butter.
Then, I added in some sliced leeks and onions and let it cook until soft.
I sprinkled the mix with some fresh thyme, and it smelled so good!
Into the pot went 1 big can of whole peeled tomatoes, 2 cups of chicken broth, and some salt. I let that cook for about 15 minutes.
I didn’t have any cream, aside from what was on the top of the milk, so I used rice to thicken the soup. 1/4 cup went into the pot with some balsamic vinegar and cooked until it was tender.
When it was all cooked up, I used my immersion blender to mix it. Actually, John mixed it. Thanks, John!
In a bowl with shaved cheese and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar? It looked beautiful!
We ate it with a spinach-beet-goat cheese salad and cranberry dressing. Yum!
