Rainy Day Tomato Bisque

My cute friend Heidi gave me the recipe to this delicious tomato soup. I feel like I would be denying the world of heavenly goodness if I did not post this for all to see!

Rainy Day{or any day, everyday}Tomato Bisque

1/2 c. onion chopped {i like mine a little chunky, T does not. we compromise.}

1/2 c. butter {set aside 2 T.}

2 cloves of garlic chopped

1 1/2 t. dill weed {this is what makes it delicious}

1 t. oregano

1 t. basil

Saute the above in a large pot until onions are soft then add:

1 large can of tomatoes {i have used diced and whole, just blend them up in a blender first.}

1 small can tomato paste

4 c. chicken broth

Let simmer for 10 minutes.

In a saute pan melt

2 T. butter {that you set aside}

2 T. flour

I let it bubble for a little while and get kind of thick. Make sure you keep it on a low/medium temperature because you don't want burnt butter.

Add the flour mixture to the large pot then add:

1/2 t. pepper

1-2 t. salt

4 t. honey

Let simmer for 10 minutes.

Then add:

1 small carton of cream

1 c. milk


Then die.
