Give me a moment to tell you what happened last week with this delicious Tomato Bisque. I got home from work and found that my husband was asleep. So I went about my business of cooking and all that other home stuff. When dinner was ready I woke him up and told him that he shouldn’t of taken a nap because then he won’t be able to sleep at night. He blamed the nap on the tomato bisque (I had made it the day before)! He said “I had a late lunch of tomato bisque and it was so good and filling that it put me to sleep”. So if you want to put your husband to sleep I suggest you make this bisque and ditch him…go shopping, to the antique store, craft store….anywhere that you might not want to take him!
All the green tomatoes we had have ripened and I needed to make something with the tomatoes pronto! Instead of using canned tomatoes I used fresh tomatoes that I pureed (seeds and all) with my hand held blender thingy.
- 1/4 cup onions, finely diced
- 1/4 cup celery, finely diced
