Beat the Chill with Soup Therapy Day-6
Missing the fun of dining at your favorite bistro but the threat from the winter-weather is On and don’t feel like coming out of your cozy homey zone just like me ! Don’t worry, I have a solution to it.This home-made Tomato Basil Bisque will surely content you and remind you of the same local-bistro taste.
Tomato Basil Bisque is a succulently decadent soup bursting with immense tomato flavor infused with fresh basil. It is one of the favorite soups among the kids due to the awesomeness of buttery flavor and richness of cream. But mine doesn’t have any cream. To add creaminess, yet keep it healthy, I used non-fat Greek yogurt instead of cream.
So, let’s take advantage of these frosty evenings to enjoy that extravagance and cozy warmth of soup with this homey tomato basil bisque which is guilt-free creamy.
