Excellent Tomato Bisque soup, my husband and I love this flavorful soup. I will be making this often. I did not use the optional sherry. Thank you for a great recipe.

Outstanding! Only did one thing different. I use a can of diced tomatoes with oregano, basil and garlic because that's all I had. I did not use the optional sherry. Tasted SO close to my favorite restaurant version I was thrilled! I will make this time and time again! Highly recommend.

I had a Tomato Bisque soup at a restaurant and I loved it. When I went to duplicate it I found this recipe, it is so close and so good!
