I was a bit discouraged with the results from this recipe. Guess I was expecting something with a little more tomato flavor. Being short on whole tomatoes, I had to use 3 roma tomatoes (about 2/3 lb.) and add two cans of organic diced tomatoes. After trying the food mill for a while, I gave up and grabbed the blender, blending for a few seconds, leaving lumps in the tomatoes for a bit of texture. Completed the rest of the recipe and, after adding the roux and milk blend to the tomato/spice blend, seeing and tasting that I had much more milk than tomatoes, I grabbed a 15oz can of tomato sauce and added it. It turned out okay although if I used the recipe again, I would add at least 3, if not maybe 4 beef bouillon cubes. And, I would expect that the bisque could have been a little thicker in so much as I had to add the can of tomato sauce. My wife has ask that I go back to an old family recipe that I use on occasion for tomato bisque.
