Top Review by JuliaLogan

This is the greatest tomato soup/bisque on the planet- so easy and crazy delicious! We found our garlic and onions burnt a little more quickly for some reason, so we roast those on a different sheet pan for a little less time. It's the perfect comforting little warm up to pack in the kids' lunch boxes.Vegans & non-vegans alike adore all of Chloe Coscarelli's recipes. Her cookbooks are a necessity in our kitchen. Try out this bisque (from her 1st cookbook) and you'll rush out to buy all three!
