Tomato Basil Bisque

You do not need to go into a restaurant to get restaurant style tomato basil bisque! My tomato basil soup recipe uses crushed tomatoes, garlic, chicken broth, as well as fresh basil.


  • 1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 28 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup heavy cream heavy whipping cream
  • 10-15 Basil leaves diced/chopped into small pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper to taste


  1. Bring the tomatoes, chicken broth and garlic to a rolling boil and let boil for 10 minutes or so, while stirring.
  2. Once those flavors have some together, reduce heat to low, stir in the sugar and butter and stir until combined.
  3. Drip the heavy cream in the soup while continuously stirring until all the heavy cream is combined and the soup is creamy.
  4. Stir in the basil until well combined.
  5. Serve with grated parmesan cheese and/our nutter croutons.
