Mushroom Tomato Bisque

After tasting a similar soup in a restaurant, I tinkered around with a few recipes at home and this was the result. The recipe might seem complicated, but it’s really not. And I love the blend of flavors. —Connie Stevens Schaefferstown, Pennsylvania

    I made this for the first time last year and have been making weekly since. I love it!! The only thing I changed was instead of chicken broth I use vegetable broth by kitchen basics. Whoever you are who came up with this must be a amazing cook. Thanks!!!!

    This is the first thing my husband cooked for me, and we both LOVE it! I use low sodium broth to keep the salt down, and serve it up with a loaf of freshly baked bread!
