Tomato Bisque

Submitted by Marci Giles from St. George, Utah

“Years ago I ate some of the most delicious Tomato Bisque while on vacation in Estonia. I didn’t speak the language and couldn’t ask for a recipe, but spent the next year thinking about it and trying to duplicate it. This is a crowd pleaser and is requested often year after year in church gatherings, family gatherings.”
