Easy Tomato bisque is one of my absolute favorite soup recipes! On these chilly January days, it really warms the soul. This soup is perfect served with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese and some crusty croutons. It also pairs perfectly with a cheesy, toasty homemade grilled cheese sandwich. You just can’t beat the sweet and savory combination of grilled cheese and tomato soup on a cold winter day.

This soup is a one-pot wonder, and cooks from start to finish in just about 30 minutes! Made with simple pantry ingredients, and a dash of heavy cream, this Easy Tomato Bisque will be your new go-to recipe for restaurant-quality Tomato Soup at home.

Preparing Tomato Bisque

In a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat, add the olive oil and cook the diced onion for 8-10 minutes until translucent and just starting to caramelize. Stir in the minced garlic and sauté for 1 additional minute.

Sauteeing Garlic and Onion

Pour in the chicken stock and crushed tomatoes, stirring to combine. Bring to a simmer and add in the paprika, cayenne pepper, salt, black pepper, basil, sugar, and saffron.

Tomatoes and herbs in pot

Turn the heat to low, and stir in the jasmine rice. Cook for 20 to 25 minutes until the rice is tender, skimming any foam from the surface, as needed.

Using an immersion blender (or standard blender), blend the soup until it is pureed and completely smooth.
