I had high hopes for this bisque, but it was disappointing for me. I don’t have a food mill, so I peeled, seeded and chopped 2 lbs of fresh tomatoes and pulsed them in my food processor, leaving them a little chunky for some texture. I covered this while simmering over very low heat because I didn’t want it to cook away. Since I was using fresh basil, I added it at the end so it’s flavor wouldn’t diminish over the long cooking time. The biggest problem I had with this recipe was the amount of milk – way too much in my opinion, for the amount of tomatoes. I doubt that I’ll make this recipe again, but if I do I will increase the amount of tomatoes significantly and probably use some heavy cream, just to give it some creamy richness.
