Ok so, I am trying to simulate a Campbell's Tomato-Basil Bisque that I purchased @ Costco. They rotate stock often and so there is none available.
I only had 1 can of store brand stewed tomatoes (they were a little hard) but wanted to try this recipe out. I did need to tweak a bit but I think it's going to morph into a good substitute.
I hydrated 1 teaspoon dried onions, added them to 1 pat butter and cooked for a minute or two, then added about 1/2 t dried basil. Added the tomatoes and cooked 5 minutes (as I mention hard tomatoes will up that time to 15-20 minutes)then pureed with immersion blender. Then I added some a shakes of garlic powder, couple grinds fresh black pepper, 1 t chicken bullion, 1/2 t sugar, more dried basil & used about 3/4 cup 1/2 & 1/2 as I didn't have heavy cream.
Now I know that is a lot of tweaking but simple ones and as I said I already had a certain taste in mind. We sampled 1/2 of recipe and will refrigerate other half to see how the flavor develops.
