I always loved crab and lobster bisque, but had an over abundance of tomato that I froze. This is hearty, creamy, and brings out the sweet goodness of fresh tomato AND canned if you don't have fresh on hand!

This freezes beautifully! Enjoy!!!

How to Make Garden Fresh Tomato Bisque


  1. Melt butter and sauté onion till clear and soft on medium low heat. Add flour and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. (I do this in the stock pot I will use to cook the Bisque in)
  2. Mix remaining ingredients in a large separate bowl.
  3. Put flour mixture in a blender, add enough liquid mixture to safely blend on high without spilling, until completely smooth. Pour into stock pot. Repeat blending the rest of the liquid completely smooth and add to stock pot.
  4. Simmer gently for 3 hours. Serve with fresh finely grated Parmesan Cheese and crusty Baguette bread, or grilled cheese sandwiches.
