Tomato Bisque without Stock

Tomato soup or tomato bisque is a sweet and delightful dish.

I promise every tomato lover would sure love this soup.

Our no stock variation still has the full flavour offered by the normal one as our recipe chose to use lots of aromatic veggies.

For a vegan version, you can just omit the bacon. It will still taste as good but without a hint of smokey taste.

This is a light soup, if you are going for a thicker consistency or a creamy texture, you can either minus 1 cup of water or add one small potato. The potato will give the most velvety texture, even more than heavy cream, Trust me :)

Soups are easy and fun to experiment, give it a try and choose your favourite combo of ingredients.
Good luck ~
