Tomato Bisque

This soup never fails to comfort on a cold or rainy day. Tomatoes are a favorite in my family and I am always looking for ways to include them in our meals. I made this soup on a very rainy day. It is very filling on its own but tastes great with a savory scone.

This soup has a rich creamy texture and a lovely orange color. Canned plum tomatoes have a delicious flavor citrus flavor. If you have a farmers market near you then you can try using fresh tomatoes. Do not use the tomatoes from regular grocery stores.

If you stock up on tomato cans in your pantry this would be a quick go to recipe on a busy cold weeknight.

You will need
1 28 oz can of Plum Tomatoes (I used whole tomatoes)
1/2 onion, chopped
1 tsp. ginger garlic paste
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. paprika
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. goat cheese

Heat oil in a pan and the chopped onions. Saute for a few minutes until they become transparent. Add the ginger and garlic paste and saute for a few minutes. In the meantime chop the tomatoes. Add the juice from the can and the chopped tomatoes to the pan. Add the sugar, salt and paprika. Simmer for 20 minutes.
Take off heat and blend to a puree. Return to the pan and simmer for about 3-4 minutes. Shred the cheese over the top.

Serve hot.
