Fire Roasted Tomato Bisque (Fresh Flavors Aug '11)
- 3 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 yellow onion
- 4 roasted garlic cloves from the The Fresh Market Olive Bar
- 1/2 c. sauvignon blanc
- 1 (28 oz.) can fire roasted tomatoes with juices
- 2 c. chicken stock
- 1 c. whipping cream
- salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- fresh chives, for garnish
In a large saucepan over medium heat, warm oil. Add the onion and sauté, stirring occasionally, until tender and translucent, 4 to 6 minutes. Add the garlic cloves and quickly sauté for an additional 2 minutes, mashing them with the back of a spoon. Careful to not burn the garlic.
Take pan away from heat and add the wine, and scrape up any browned bits on the bottom of the pan. Combine the fire roasted tomatoes and stock and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the cream. At this point, you may use an immersion (stick) blender and puree the soup smooth, or serve chunky style, as is. Garnish with fresh chives and serve immediately.
Easy and SUPER Delisious
Easy and everyone liked it. I added two chopped carrots, and one stalk of celery Make it the day ahead and it is even better the next day!

Absolutely wonderful! I used my immersion blender but not until smooth. Can also be used as a basis for different taste with adding shrimp or crab or your choice of ingredients.
