Gluten Free Tomato Bisque - Perfect Way to Finish a Long Day!

Another hard day at work. When I got home, I realized that I was craving comfort food and what could be better than tomato bisque with a grilled cheese sandwich (on a gluten free bread of course!)

This soup was so easy to make, but only because the immersion blender now exists in my kitchen :) Give it a try!

1 vidalia onion, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
1 celery stick, chopped
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp lemon zest
1/2 tsp lemon pepper
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 28 oz jar or fire roasted crushed tomatoes
1 good size fresh tomato, chopped (I used heirloom tomato)
any leftover goat or sheep milk cheese that is too small to grate but hard to throw away. I used couple of pieces
3 tbsp of fresh basil, julienned
2 tbsp of olive oil
1 tbsp of goat milk butter

Heat olive oil and butter in a medium size pot. Throw your onions, carrots, celery and spices. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the fire roasted crushed tomatoes, chopped fresh tomato, minced garlic, and pieces of cheese to the mixture. Stir and cover the pot. Lower the heat to simmer and let the soup simmer for 20 minutes. Add the fresh basil right before pureeing the soup.

I also threw some fresh basil and a little cheese on top. Absolutely delish.
