In a large soup pot sauté all of the vegetables starting with the onion and the garlic first then adding in the others.Cook for about ten minutes or so then add the stock.Bring to a rapid boil,lower the heat to medium,add the bay leaf and the sherry.Simmer for another fifteen minutes,add the half and half, then puree the soup by using an electric whip stick or in a food processor.Return the soup to the stove,bring it up to a slow boil and add the rue to thicken.Serve with a dollop of sour cream or creme fresh if desried.Enjoy!
A word of caution while pureeing this bisque,if you are using a food processor allow the bisque to cool slightly or use a smaller handle pot to scoop out the vegetable to puree.We don't want you to burn yourself while making this,safety first always!
