Tomato Basil Bisque

Tomato Basil Bisque

This is a delicious recipe for a tomato bisque soup that can be made on the stove top, in the Vitamix© blender or as I do it a combination of the two.  It is great with grilled cheese sandwiches.

Ingredients:

1 cup celery, chopped ( I use the inner most part of the celery stock including the leaves)
3/4 cup carrot, slice (I wash them but I leave the peels on)
1/4 cup onion chopped
1 tbsp butter
1 tbschicken broth
1 cube chicken boullion
1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp dried crushed basil
1/2 tsp dried crushed oregano
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
3 oz. tomato paste
1 14 1/2 oz. can diced tomatoes
3 cups tomato juice
1/4 cup fresh basil, minced
1 cup whipping cream
pesto sauce and fresh basil for garnish

Directions:

Put celery, carrots, onions, garlic, butter, dried oregano and basil, salt, sugar, bullion cube, tomato paste, and chicken broth into the Vitamix© Blender. Start the blender on the lowest variable speed and ramp it up very slowly until mixture is smooth and homogenized. Switch to high speed for about 7 minutes until mixture is steaming hot add tomato juice and continue blending another two to three minutes.  Stop blender and pour into sauce pan and add diced tomatoes.  Bring to a boil and turn down heat and simmer for about 30 minutes. Add fresh basil and cream and allow to return to a slow boil. Remove from heat and dish into serving bowls. Garnish each bowl with pesto sauce and fresh basil.

My daughter and I like to have this with grilled cheese sandwiches.
