Tomato Bisque Recipe

We have a ton of tomatoes in the garden this year.  We moved to Ontario - the Niagara region and wow!!! All sorts.  The flavours are just crazy wonderful.  Yvonne made Tomato Brisque yesterday and as I have several people requesting the recipe, here it is:

Saute one small onion and three cloves of garlic in olive oil.
Add one cup of chicken broth.
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
5 chopped basil leaves(fresh) (You know how we like basil!)
LOTS of chopped tomatoes(LOTS)

Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes
Add juice of one lime

At this point Yvonne took half the soup and put in a blender then poured it back with the original half.  You can blend all if you want smooth or as we did, leave do it half and half.
Depending on how much you make, you could freeze some at this point.
Add some cream before serving.  To taste.
We put the cream in and then blended it. But if you plan on freezing some don't add the cream.
Garnish as you like.

We ate it all over two days so there wasn't any left to freeze! 🙂
