It’s true — fall is officially here! While everyone’s minds may jump to pumpkin spice as the “it” item in autumn, I would like to argue that tomatoes are sadly neglected during this time of year. They are an essential ingredient in many fall foods and provide the comfort and coziness that fall brings to light. Though the past few weeks have been crazy hot, keep this recipe in mind for the next time you’re snuggled up in bed and want a little comfort food. All it takes are a few simple ingredients and 20 minutes of your time.
2 cloves garlic
1 small yellow onion
2 tbsp olive oil (LYKOVOUNO)
28 oz can diced tomatoes
2 cups chicken stock
1/4 cup tomato paste
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/4 cup Greek yogurt (optional)
First, chop up your small yellow onion and dice your cloves of garlic. Once these are cut, throw them in a pan with your olive oil and cook for about 5 minutes until your onion turns transparent.
Afterwards, take your onions and garlic and throw them in a blender with your diced tomatoes, chicken stock, tomato paste, salt and pepper. Blend these together until they are thoroughly mixed.
Dump the contents of your blender into a large pot and set over medium heat. Let your bisque come to a simmer and add some chopped basil for extra flavor. If you prefer your soup a bit creamier, add some Greek yogurt to the pot and stir until it’s completely mixed with the other contents of your bisque. Once your bisque is completely heated, you can eat with a side of grilled cheese or topped with some croutons. EXCELLENT WITH AN EXTRA DRIZZLE OF LYKOVOUNO OLIVE OIL ON TOP.
