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.

Note: We suggest flipping the garlic halfway through roasting. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
