Easy Pantry Tomato Bisque

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by Cadillacgirl

This is another soup that I came up with - it goes best with a grilled ham and cheese sandwich in my opinion! For the cream, I use either 18% or whipping cream - whichever I have on hand. I've used half and half, but it's not quite as good. Depending on the brand of tomatoes and juice, you may want to add a tbsp of sugar as some brands are a little bitter - I like it best with Unico brand or sealer ones I buy at the Farmer's Market. I've even made it just in an electric frying pan and it still turns out!

Nice lunch today of grilled cheese and tomato bisque. I cut the amt of all the spices in half and we still felt it was too much. I used Muir Glen brand fire roasted diced tomatoes which was a treat. Made for ZWT for Team Emerald City Shakers.
