But Im not here to rave about another soup recipe, Im here to tell you that I found it...EUREKA...the perfect recipe ! I have found the secret ingredient! A Tomato Bisque that hits the spot in all the right places. To top it off, this recipe is easy and fast to make. In fact, so many people request it, that I just had to post it here for you.
Hmmm, secret ingredient you say. Well, are you ready...
*If serving 4 people, I would double the recipe
1 Tbl. butter/EVOO
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tomato, chopped
1/2 c. oil-packed, sun-dried tomatos, drained and chopped << MUST be oil-packed!
3 c. chicken broth
1/2 c. cream (I use 1/4 c.)
2 sprigs thyme
In a dutch oven over med-high heat, saute the onion and garlic in the Tbl. butter. Cook till translucent, approx. 4-5 minutes. Add broth, tomato, sun-dried tomatoes, and sprigs of thyme. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer for 20 min. Remove sprigs, blend soup together (an immersion blender is wonderful for this). Add cream and salt/pepper to taste. Serve with mozzerella and cheddar panini.
