    LeeDelaino's Note:

    The ingredients and process for this soup are fairly simple, but requires patience and time to produce a nice rich flavor. I prefer chicken or smoked chicken stock, but this soup is easily made vegetarian or vegan by omitting the animal based products. update: I regularly use cajun spice (a really yummy one w/no added salt) instead of the italian seasoning and basil listed below. The measurements of all the spices are estimated and should be varied to taste. I like mine spicy by adding more pepper and cajun spice.

    1. 1
      On a medium low heat, saute onions until soft and light brown.
    2. 2
      Add garlic, and continue to saute until fragrant and light brown. Reduce heat if necessary to keep from burning.
    3. 3
      Add tomato paste to pan, and continue to cook on low, stirring often, until tomato paste turns dark red.
    4. 4
      Add all of the remaining ingredients except for cream and salt and pepper.
    5. 5
      Raise heat to medium high, bringing the soup to a boil.
    6. 6
      Reduce heat again to medium low, and cook until volume of the soup reduces approximately 1/3 or until thickened to an almost sauce-like consistency.
    7. 7
      Remove bay leaves. Blend soup to a smooth consistency using either a hand blender or blender.
    8. 8
      In pan, add cream in the amount needed to reach a bisque consistency.
    9. 9
      Add salt and pepper and adjust any seasoning to your preference.
    10. 10
      Note: For a flavor boost to a vegetarian version, look for canned roasted tomatoes which will add a smoky flavor. A dash of liquid smoke also does the trick if you like the flavor. I also like cajun seasoning in almost everything -- use at will.
