How To Turn Canned Tomato Soup Into An Elegant Bisque
Many bisques are tomato-based, which makes most canned tomato soups an ideal foundation for making one; all you need to add is a thickener like heavy cream, creamer, or roux.
For a traditional flavor, add some white wine or sherry along with the cream. Alternatively, you can use vegetable or chicken stock and garnish with fresh chives or basil.
To make a seafood bisque, boil the lobster, crab, or shrimp first and remove the shells. Sauté the shells before adding them to the other ingredients, then add the meat at the end.
