Herbed Tomato Bisque

This would be great to chase away the chill on a stormy night. This creamy tomato soup has a hint of sweetness from honey and great herb flavor.—Dawn Richard, Princeton, Minnesota,

    Just OK for me. A little on the bland side. I followed the recipe exactly. Next time I may add more dill and parsley, plus possibly some basil and garlic. It was fast and easy to make and could be adapted for either the slow cooker or instant pot.
