Roasted Tomato-Basil Bisque

Roasted Tomato-Basil Bisque

And for the tomato lovers - here’s one you’ll really enjoy.  Prepare roasted tomatoes and veggies same as above.  At food processor step, include
1/2 cup heavy cream,
an additional 1/2 cup chicken broth, and
1/2 cup white wine instead of red.

Process at puree setting for 1 minute. Pour into sauce pan and simmer on stovetop 15 minutes, stirring often. Serve in bowls with sautéed shrimp and/or crab cakes for garnish. Makes an outstanding first course and also does well with salad and breadsticks when you want lighter fare with a robust flair.
