Tomato Bisque with Fresh Goat Cheese
Soup and Salads
Tomato Bisque is delicious and it is even better when you can prepare it with Marina's Tomato Sauce. Enjoy!
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon grated ginger
1 cup diced onion
1 24-ounce jar Marina's Tomato Sauce
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon fine sea salt, or to taste
½ teaspoon red chile flakes, more to taste
Pinch of cayenne pepper
4 ounces good-quality fresh goat cheese, such as Terrill Creek Goat Cheese
Put oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. When it simmers, add garlic and ginger, and saute until just fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Add onion and continue cooking until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.
Add tomatoes, sugar, salt, chile flakes, cayenne, and 1 cup of water. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 30 minutes or until flavors have melded. Using an immersion blender, puree soup until smooth. Add goat cheese and stir well until mixture is creamy but with a few evident crumbles of cheese. Ladle into bowls and serve.
