We love the tomato basil bisque (Signature Brand) that they sell at Safeway grocery stores. I've tried to duplicate it but I'm not close yet. Does anybody have a recipe for this? By the way, exactly what is bisque?

Hello, you are absolutely right! The soup is wonderful. Sometimes they have a good sale on it during the winter months. My family just loves it. Did you know that it freezes really well. I have done that and it is still great after a few months in the freezer.

Bisque... well... it has cream in it or milk.

a nice tomato bisque can be made simply by adding a can of milk or fat free half and half in place of the water when you make a can of tomato soup.

Add a little fresh minced basil if you like...

sometimes I also add a small can of slices stewed tomatoes. wonderful with toast!

There is another site where a pregnant woman is looking for this recipe. A reader posted this link http://the.hono  FP509070310.html for a version of the soup that is lower in calories. From what I read, this tastes just the same... but if you dont care about the fat or calories, then use cream instead of the half & half (safeway/vons uses cream).

I love the tomato basil bisque at Safeway. I used this recipe, but it wasn't quite right. So I added 1/2 block of cream cheese. It was perfect.

Do they have a website? Some restaurants (I know that Olive Garden is one), will post recipes on their site.
