Tomato Dill Bisque Recipe

My family really enjoys this soup when we make it from our garden tomatoes. When those tomatoes are plentiful, I make a big batch (without mayonnaise) and freeze it. Then we can enjoy it even after the garden is gone for the season.

Ingredients

  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 pounds tomatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 chicken bouillon cube
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large saucepan, saute onions and garlic in butter until tender. Add tomatoes, water, bouillon, sugar and seasonings. Cover and simmer 10 minutes or until tomatoes are tender. Remove from heat; cool slightly.
