How does a bowl of smooth, creamy, and incredibly flavourful soup sound for tonight's dinner? I'm already mouthwatering at the idea and I have the perfect Tomato Bisque recipe to make that happen.
I love soups, especially a good rich heartwarming bisque. The smooth creamy texture and the incredible comforting flavour has the power to turn any given dinner into a super gourmet experience.
Bisque is also really easy to make, it's affordable and really practical. So if you need options for a last minute mid-week dinner this recipe is perfect. And if you are looking to impress someone with a lovely dinner, you can be certain this soup will do just that.
You will be amazed by how easy this recipe is. Every time I share this recipe I get a comment about it. I guess it's because it seems like a task to get the thick and super rich texture and taste, but it really isn't.
The truth is that it takes you only 30 minutes to make and it is super simple. The original bisque recipes are usually made with stock made from crustacean shells, which takes a while to cook. But by using plant-based ingredients we are simplifying the process.
We basically need to roast veggies in a pot, add broth and a few other ingredients and seasonings. Blend everything with an immersion blender until you have a smooth soup. After that, everything goes back on the stove so it simmers for a few minutes.
You can make bisque with a ton of different vegetables, there are no rules here. I might explore other options but my favourite one is, hands down, tomato bisque. I like to keep it simple and stick with the classics when it comes to bisque.
Other than the flavour, tomatoes are a vegetable that's readily available in so many places. It's also very budget friendly if you are looking to stick to a budget. And last but not least, if you can't get your hands on fresh tomatoes you can always buy them packaged.
I do recommend looking for tomatoes stored in glass if you do buy them this way. Canned tomatoes are easy to find but they're not the healthiest thing on the shelves. Cans have an epoxy lining which stops the acid of food rust the metal. The lining is made with BPA which can leach into your food. And since tomatoes are so acidic the crazy chemical reaction which I don't fully understand is stronger, meaning more BPA will end up in your tomatoes.
This is something to keep in mind, not only when it comes to canned tomatoes but for all food stored in plastic containing BPA's. If there's a glass option, opt for that, and of course, fresh is always better.
Back to our delicious soup now! All that is left is to serve your warm steamy soup in a bowl, add soy cream and nutritional yeast and give it a good stir. Toast some yummy bread to go with it and you are all set!
