Secret Recipe Club: Sweet Tomato Basil Bisque

sweet tomato bisqueFor this month's Secret Recipe Club, I received Shockingly Delicious' blog in the swap. There were so many amazing recipes to choose from, but I was drawn to this recipe for Sweet Tomato Basil Bisque. I love tomato basil soup and I was intriqued by the addition of honey to the soup.   I served this soup as a started at the wine exchange I hosted.  This recipe makes a ton of soup, there was enough for my party and I still had a large container left over to pop in the freezer.  I know Miss F will love this soup with a grilled cheese on the side.  I would never have thought to add honey to soup, but it really works beautifully.  Thanks again to Shockingly Delicious for the amazing recipe.
Sweet Tomato Bisque

1/3 cup butter
1 large onion, peeled and finely chopped
1/3 cup flour
2 (28-ounce) cans peeled crushed tomatoes
1 tablespoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
8 cups chicken stock
5 tablespoons honey
1 ½ cups cream
½ cup finely chopped fresh Italian parsley

In large soup pot, melt butter. Over medium heat, sauté onions in butter, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Onions should be translucent but not brown. Add flour and stir; it will look a bit pasty. Cook and stir for a minute or two until the paste, begins to brown slightly. Add tomatoes, basil, oregano and stock. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Add honey, cream and parsley and return to a boil. Use an immersion blender to blend to desired consistency. Taste, add salt and pepper to season, and serve.

Beautiful soup! Pardon, bisque (I will never learn the difference ;-) )
Great pick for SRC!
p.s. Just occurred to me: is it possible that biscuits are so called because they are supposed to accompany a bisque?

I'm so glad I finally got an immersion blender! This is definitely going on my list of things to make!

Kelley @ The Culinary Enthusiast said...

I bet this would be a good way to use up some of those tomatoes at the end of the summer too! This makes me feel like I need to invest in an immersion blender...

Would love it if you stopped by the new seasonalpotluck.com to share some recipes! We're featuring avocados this month.
