Recipe: Homemade Tomato Bisque

I am so ready for fall foods. Soups, chili, chicken-n-dumplings, etc. Let’s face it. There are certain foods we just don’t cook during the summer. At least, I don’t.

Here’s another easy homemade soup for you to try. Homemade Tomato Bisque. So, so, so, SO much better than the canned stuffed. Give it a whirl this fall with a grillled cheese sandwich. It is yummy!


1 pound tomatoes (canned)
2 cups milk
2 Tablespoons margarine or butter
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
salt and pepper to taste

Heat the tomatoes in a saucepan. Heat milk and butter in a separate saucepan, but do not boil. When tomatoes are hot (not boiling) stir in soda and pour into the hot milk and stir. Remove from heat and season to taste. Can be doubled or tripled but do not increase the baking soda.

**Recipe note from my mother*** ‘This recipe sounds like what Maw Maw Bussy used to make for me when I was a child and didn’t feel well. She would walk across the field between our houses and bring it to me. I thought it was wonderful!’

In case you’re wondering: ‘yes. Still quite dizzy and sleepy. Can’t tilt my head backwards or to the right without setting it off. Praying that it goes away sooner rather than later.’
