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?

Bisque simply means a thick cream soup ...

Have never tried to make a bisque soup myself but did find this recipe that sounds really yummy!!!

Tomato Basil Bisque


Serves 4

1 1/2 tablespoon butter
1/2 large yellow onion
1/4 rib celery
1 1/2 tablespoon flour
1/2 tablespoon minced garlic
1 can (16-ounce size) diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
1 can (16-ounce size) tomato puree
1/2 can (16-ounce size) beef stock
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 bay leaf
Salt and pepper to taste

Heat butter in a large stockpot. Dice onion and celery and add to pot. Saute until the onion is transparent. Sprinkle flour over onions one tablespoon at a time, stirring in each one thoroughly with a large spoon until paste forms. Add garlic, diced tomatoes and basil, and stir. Stir in tomato puree and beef stock slowly, then whipping cream. The soup should be a rose color. Add bay leaf and simmer on low for about an hour. Remove bay leaf before serving.

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 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.
