I experimented and utilized several versions to come up with this recipe. It is widely enjoyed by family and neighbors. I use only Muir Glen tomatoes because they are so rich and thick.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute the veggies in butter and olive oil combo until softened. Add tomato ingredients and spices. Simmer for 3 to 6 hours. Adjust thickness with more chicken broth or tomatoes.
  2. About 5-10 minutes before serving, add the cream and cream cheese.

This is a phenomenal recipe and SO easy to make! My husband and I can not stand watery tomato basil bisque and this over exceeded our expectations! I'm no photographer but I needed to take a photo to show how great it is! I also added a 1/4 cup of sugar to my recipe just to cut the acidity a little and a little tip if you LOVE the tomatoey taste of the soup and less cream I use Amore all natural tomato paste it's only 4.5 oz but its double concentrated and really packs a punch to your taste buds! I am also a basil lover so I doubled even tripled my basil but this is a great outline that you can tweak to how you bet enjoy tomato basil bisque. Happy cooking!

Restaurant quality! Very, very good. Lots of vitamin C! I added some sugar (1/4) cup to cut the acidity a bit. The baking soda helps also with that. Enjoy!
