How to Make Tomato Bisque for a crowd


  1. Dice all the first three ingredients, place the olive oil in the pan(s), and add the next three ingredients, Cook for 6 to 8 minutes. I split mine between 2 pans for ease.
  2. Add the garlic to the pan(s), cook for another 3 or 4 minutes
  3. Place the chicken broth, tomatoes and the sugar in the roaster or whatever you are cooking in. Then add in the coked vegetable mixture from above.
  4. Add in the tomato paste, Simmer all for at least 45 min. to an hour. Now process the mixture by either a blender, food processor or a Ninja. After you have pureed the mixture, pour into a holding container. When all your mixture is pureed place back in the roaster.
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Add in the heavy cream about 30 min. prior to serving, reheat to serving temp (145-165) DO NOT BOIL after adding cream. Serve in bowls, add a teaspoon size swirl of heavy cream in each bowl if desired for appearance and garnish with fresh parsley
