"This recipe ROCKS! A favorite in my little household, and a hit at family gatherings. I have to leave out the carrots, as my wife is allergic, so I don't get the full mirepoix effect, but this beats any bisque I've ever tried."

Preparation

Melt butter in large pot over medium/high heat. Add onions, carrots and green pepper and sauté for about 5 minutes, or until the onion is softened. Add the flour and continue to sauté for another minute, stirring constantly. Add the chicken broth, tomatoes, sugar, basil, tarragon, cayenne pepper, thyme and bay leaves. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 40 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly.

Remove the bay leaves and, working in batches, puree the soup in a blender until almost smooth. Return the pureed soup to the pot, add the cream, paprika, curry powder and white pepper; heat the soup until it is hot, but not boiling. Salt to taste.

This recipe ROCKS! A favorite in my little household, and a hit at family gatherings. I have to leave out the carrots, as my wife is allergic, so I don't get the full mirepoix effect, but this beats any bisque I've ever tried.

I guess I am a little slow, but I am looking forward to trying this, but can't help but wonder what size 'can' of tomatoes are we to use.

This recipe sounds great but is incomplete, so we can't finish it. 'add the cream, paprika, curry powder and white pepper' the recipe doesn't say how much of these ingredients we should add.
