Recipe Ingredients for Tomato Bisque

3 c water
1 1/2 lb fresh tomatoes
1/4 c sun dried tomato
2 stalks celery
2 onion
1 leek
4 cloves garlic
2 T herbs
1/2 c raw cashews
1/4 cup fresh basil

Recipe Directions for Tomato Bisque

  1. Chop tomatoes, celery, onion, leek and garlic. Simmer in water, homemade vegetable stock, or low sodium vegetable boullion. Add herbs, you can use any to taste: oregano, thyme, sage, and bay leaf are particularly nice in this recipe. Simmer 20 - 30 minutes.

  2. Transfer the soup to a blender or food processor (careful, it will be hot!) with the cashews. I use a handblender, and it works a little better to do the cashews first with about 2 cups soup. Blend until smooth and creamy. If desired, you can reserve about 2 cups of the cooked veggies and return it to the remaining soup after it's blended.

  3. Stir in the basil, salt and pepper to taste.
