Works well with grilled cheese or a nice green salad.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This bisque brings tomato soup to a whole new level. It's full of flavor with a slight kick. We loved the addition of roasted garlic. When garlic is roasted it becomes sweeter and it added a ton of flavor to this bisque. Serve with grilled cheese for a grown-up version of a childhood favorite.

How To Make spicy crock pot tomato bisque

Test Kitchen Tips
We suggest flipping the garlic halfway through roasting.
  • Preheating the oven.
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Garlic cloves in a bowl with oil.
    Peel a whole head of garlic. Place cloves in a small oven-safe dish and drizzle with olive oil. Roast for 30 to 40 minutes or until soft and golden brown. (Garlic can also be roasted in a foil packet.)
  • All ingredients, except heavy cream and Romano cheese, in the Crock Pot.
    While garlic is roasting add tomatoes and tomato paste to a large Crock Pot (at least 5 quart). Add all remaining ingredients except heavy cream and Romano cheese.
  • Roasted garlic added to the slow cooker.
    Stir together and drop in roasted garlic once it's done roasting.
  • Tomato bisque cooking in the slow cooker.
    Cook on high for 3 hours.
  • Pureeing the mixture.
    Reduce heat to low and puree mixture until completely smooth with a hand blender.
  • Adding heavy cream to the bisque.
    Add heavy cream.
  • Bisque continuing to simmer.
    Let simmer another 30 minutes.
  • Bisque garnished with cheese and basil.
    Serve and garnish with cheese and basil stems.
