How to Make Tomato Bisque Soup Recipe by Angela Roberts

A tomato bisque soup recipe is often are made with chicken broth and canned tomatoes. I understand using canned tomatoes when fresh are not available, but chicken broth is a no go for me. I want to taste nothing but creamy tomato soup, flavored with the herbs of my choice. Typical recipes will have bouillon cubes or chicken broth and flour. I decided against those ingredients, using heavy cream and white wine.

This Tomato Bisque Soup Recipe is a Healthy Version

The result is a healthier, cleaner taste of pure tomato. I picked the tomatoes and herbs out of my garden, and I wanted to share a soup that you could easily make without a lot of fuss, yet still have those sophisticated flavors.

Of course, you can pair this with a grilled cheese sandwich and make that classic American meal.

Here some some ways to put a creative spin on tomato bisque soup recipe:

  • Add fresh sweet corn, cut from from the cob, for texture.
  • Add in homemade croutons, or crunchy bacon.
  • Add hot sauce and chopped avocado.
  • Add a some chile oil and replace cream with coconut milk.  So this at the end before stirring. Skip the wine.
  • Add a drizzle of honey. Honey does something to tomatoes that I just adore.
  • Skip the cream and simply have a great tomato basil soup.

  1. Wow! I ended up doubling this recipe w/o really intending to. 9.5 lbs of tomatos made 14 cups of soup. AFter blending I tasted it and decided it is a GREAT all purpose tomato sauce that I can freeze and use to finish this soup recipe and other things during the winter. I have to eat low sodium so i did not put any in. It is still great and so much better than any of the “no salt added” tomato sauces available in grocery stores. I took 2 cups at first to make the soup…..added about a tbs of butter and a 1/2 TBS of heavy cream with a little bit it honey. It is very reminiscent of Panera’s creamy tomato soup………….w/o salt and w/o all the sweetness…………which means its healthier. I believe this is likely to be my “go to” tomato sauce recipe every year we get a good harvest…..One more note…..I left the slow cooker on high overnight so it needed very little blending. Very creamy, even before the cream was added… Thanks!!

  2. The recipe for the Tomato Bisque is not showing up on this page. I have searched your site for it and cannot locate it. Can you repost it please? Thanks so much!

  3. All of the adds on your page make it nigh impossible to view the content that actually attracts people to view it.

  4. Hi,
    I am wondering how many tomatoes you would suggest using if you have a plethora of romas? Or about how many grams of tomatoes you would say you usually use(

  5. 5 stars
    just made it..why no cilantro? Does it not cook well? Will now make the cheesy garlic bread to go with it and try to just eat one serving…lol

  6. I am a huge tomato bisque fan! and I love your creative ideas to elevate (or not) the traditional flavors. Nicely done.

  7. Angela this looks just fantastically delicious and the color is just to die for. Great recipe that I am printing out to try later.
