Tomato Bisque – Soup Might Not Count as a Meal, but Bisque Certainly Does

It’s been awhile since I dropped a Seinfeld reference, but
this hearty tomato bisque had me reminiscing about the famous “soup’s not a
meal” episode. It’s rich, hearty, and satisfyingly thick without being heavy.
Sorry, Bania, it counts. 

There are different opinions on what makes something a
bisque. Technically, it’s made from some sort of shellfish puree, but modern
usage includes vegetables as well. Above and beyond that, it has to have cream,
and be thickened with rice.

One problem with many of the tomato soups I’ve had, is that
they are either thickened with tons of tomato paste, which is like eating a
bowl of pasta sauce, or they’re thickened with a flour roux or cornstarch slurry,
which leaves them too pasty for me. A little rice thickens the soup just as
well , but also gives it a nice silky texture.

As far as the canned tomatoes go, we’re using the same
argument here we use for tomato sauce. Unless you have some amazingly sweet,
vine-ripened specimens around, that you’ve peeled, seeded, and cooked down to get rid of the excess
moisture, then chances are San Marzano tomatoes will produce a superior

I tried to stress in the video how important it is to adjust
the seasonings to your liking,  especially the sweetness. Many of us were raised on Campbell’s tomato soup
(and grilled cheese sandwiches, of course), and because that flavor is so
ingrained in our taste memories, you need to get this at least close for it to work.
Taste, adjust, taste, adjust, and as always, enjoy!

Ingredients for 6 Portions:
1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup diced onion
1/2 cup diced celery
3 cloves garlic
1 quart chicken broth, plus more as needed
1 (28-oz) can crushed San Marzano tomatoes, or about 3 1/2
cups of other crushed tomatoes
1/2 tsp paprika
3 tbsp white long grain rice
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 or 2 tsp sugar, or to taste
salt and pepper to taste
cayenne to taste
basil to garnish

Comforting Soups

by Pam on January 19, 2014

I have been on the couch for the last couple of days due to feeling terrible. I have no energy and a horrible headache that won’t go away. Needless to say, I have no desire to cook and have not made a single recipe all weekend long. I hope to be back to cooking tomorrow, but until then, here are some of my favorite comforting soups.

Spinach and Turkey Italian Sausage Soup with Veggies and Orzo[1]


Taco Soup[2]


Chicken and Basil Dumplings[3]


Cheese and Potato Soup[4]


Roasted Tomato Soup with Poblanos, Oregano, & Cotija Cheeseaka Sopa de Jitomate y Rajas[5][6]


Southwestern Cream of Chicken Soup[7]


Roasted Garlic and Tomato Soup with Fresh Basil[8]


Hungarian Mushroom Soup[9]


Pasta e Fagioli[10]

    Sorry you are feeling poorly Pam and hope it goes away soon. You have provided a fine looking list of soups and I’m off to look at the details. By coming to Florida, we have missed a big part of soup season.

    Dear Pam, I am so sorry that you are not feeling well. I wish I lived near to help.

    All of these soups look delicious and comforting for when you are not feeling well.
