One day I went to Panera Bread with friends and tried their tomato soup and I was in love!! The problem was I can't recreate a dish (I wish I could), so I began searching online. I ran across this recipe on FoodandWine.com and thought it sounds hearty and delicious. I made this adding extra vegetables and haven't turned back! I make it in big batches and freeze it in portions my family will eat. I pair this with a chicken parmesan grilled cheese or grilled cheese with roasted mushrooms and onions smothered in smoked chipotle Gouda!
Thaw in a bowl in the frog overnight. Place in a sauce pan and bring to a simmer to reheat and ENJOY! If you think last minute I want Tomato Bisque, place the bag in cold water to help quickly begin the thawing process enough that it can be broken into chunks. In a sauce pan, add enough water to cover the bottom, place the chunks in, cover with a lid. Stir occasionally until its thawed and warmed through, then ENJOY!
