Homemade Tomato Bisque!!!

Growing up my mother always made fresh soups weekly. 

I have vivid memories of coming home from school to homemade tomato soup, one of my favorites and so easy to make. This recipe can be made with milk or without, depending on what your family enjoys.  

Sooooo yummy on a cold day!  Enjoy.

Tomato Bisque
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped carrots

Saute the above ingredients in a little butter or canola oil until translucent. Add 1 tablespoon of white flour to thicken the veggie mixture.  Add two 12-ounce cans of whole tomatoes, drained and chopped, 1 tsp. sugar and 1 tsp. fresh basil. Stir….

Add 4 cups chicken or veggie broth and 1 bay leaf.

Cover and simmer for 30 minutes.  Discard Bay leaf and puree the soup.  

Add 2 cups of whole or 2% milk (optional), salt and pepper to taste.
