Fire Roasted Tomato Bisque

Tomato bisque is a luscious and indulgent variation of the beloved tomato soup. It takes the essence of classic tomato soup and elevates it to a new level of creamy perfection. Made with fresh or canned tomatoes, this soup undergoes a meticulous process to achieve its signature velvety smoothness.
While traditional bisque recipes typically feature seafood as the main ingredient, tomato bisque showcases the natural sweetness and tanginess of ripe tomatoes. This variant of bisque is a delightful departure from the seafood-based versions, offering a comforting and satisfying option for tomato lovers.

Tomato Bisque Serves : 4


2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 medium carrot, finely chopped
1 celery rib, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour (or gf flour)
4 cups chicken stock or canned low-sodium broth
2 14 1/2-ounce can diced fire-roasted tomatoes, drained
3 tablespoons tomato paste
1 teaspoon sugar or honey
1/4 cup heavy cream
Salt and freshly ground pepper


In a medium saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter. Add the chopped onion, carrot, celery and garlic, cover and cook over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are just beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables and stir over low heat for 1 minute, or until the flour is fully incorporated. Add the chicken stock, tomatoes, tomato paste and sugar and bring to a boil. Cover partially and cook the soup over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender, 15 minutes.

Step 2

Transfer soup to a blender (or use immersion blender) and puree until smooth. Add the heavy cream and puree to incorporate. Season the soup with salt and pepper to taste.
