During the cold months of winter, I often want homemade soup but don’t have the ingredients or time to make a batch. That’s why I like to grab the Full Circle Organic soup boxes.
Available in three classic flavors – Chunky Tomato, Lentil and Chicken Noodle – these soups are made with organic vegetables and no preservatives or MSG. The vegetables used are fresh and plump, and in the Chicken Noodle, you will find juicy chunks of chicken and delicious egg noodles.
My favorite is the Chunky Tomato paired with a gooey grilled cheese sandwich. It is so good on a cold, rainy day, but other times, I like to turn the chunky tomato into a delicious, velvety bisque. It is the perfect first course for a dinner party, and no one will ever know that it wasn’t homemade.
Creamy Tomato Bisque
1 large fresh tomato, seeded and diced
1 Tbs olive oil
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1/2 cup chicken or vegetable broth
1 (17.3 oz) box Full Circle Chunky Tomato Soup
3/4 cup half-and-half
fresh basil, for garnish
Full Circle Soup & Snack Oyster Crackers, for serving
In a saucepan, add the tomatoes and oil. Sauté over medium heat. Add the garlic powder, black pepper and broth. Pour in the box of soup and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and add the half-and-half. Use an immersion blender or electric blender to liquefy the soup until it is very smooth. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve. Warm bisque again before serving. Garnish with fresh basil leaves, and serve with Full Circle Soup & Snack Oyster Crackers.
