Copycat Panera’s Tomato Bisque

I love this soup, but hate having to go out to get it, so with some trial and error I have created my version of one of my favorite soups.

Ingredients:

2 28oz. Cans Stewed Tomatoes, drained

4 C Vegetable Broth

1 Carrot, minced

1 Celery Stalk, minced

1 Onion, minced

2 T Flour

1T Sugar

1/2 tsp. Dried Thyme

At least 1 t Dried Basil (I did mine to taste)

1/2 tsp. Red Pepper Flake (optional)

1/2 C Half and Half

Directions:

-In medium skillet over medium-low heat, sauté carrot. celery and onion for about 3 minutes.  Stir in flour and cook until flour browns a little, about 5 minutes.

-Add above mix and all other ingredients except half and half to crockpot.

-Cook 6 hours low, blend mixture either in a blender or with hand blender.  You don’t want chunks, this soup should be smooth.

-Stir in half and half.  Enjoy.

Great with sour cream and croutons.
