Oma's Tomato Bisque Soup

➤ by Oma Gerhild Fulson

Tomato Bisque is a such delicious soup.

This tomato bisque soup, aka Tomaten-Bisque-Suppe, is great for all. Smooth, well-seasoned, and creamy, it's delicious as a light lunch or supper, served with some fresh crusty bread. What's also great is that vegetarians and vegans can enjoy it as well. Check the A bit of this & a bit of that section for additions to make this soup spicier ... the way my hubby like it.

A bit of this and a bit of that ...

  1. Add 1 clove of garlic, crushed, along with the vegetables.
  2. Season with a pinch of chili powder and a dash of Worcestershire sauce.
  3. Use Montreal Steak Spice to give it a bit of kick!
  4. Spoon a bit of cream or swirl it in when serving.
  5. Garnish with chives or parsley.

German Soup?

This recipe reminds me of my Mutti. She'd take whatever she had in the fridge and turn it into a wonderful dinner. The soup recipe above is a perfect example.

All its ingredients are in my fridge and cupboard right now. Even without a recipe, I'd turn it into a soup ... and even though it wouldn't be a traditional German soup recipe, it would taste German. 

Why? Because my taste buds are tuned to German cooking. I'd season it and follow the 'German methods' I learned from my Mutti. Wunderbar! Suppe!

When is a Soup a Bisque?

Bisques are traditionally made with shellfish, such as crab, shrimp, lobster, or crayfish. The stock is then thickened with the pureed shellfish meat.

However, bisques can also be thickened with pureed vegetables. That makes it a perfect method to make it vegan. Hence, in this case, pureed vegetables thicken this well seasoned vegetable stock.

Among vegan soup recipes, this one is really easy. The quantities can be adjusted as needed, with more or less of each vegetable added.

Oma says:

If you're looking for healthy soup recipes, vegetable soups are definitely full of nutrients and vitamins.

Delicious served for lunch or supper, or as a first course of a multi-course dinner.
