Tomato Bisque


  • 3 tablespoons Sue Bee® Honey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon finely ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 1 1/2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley


  • In a medium pot, heat the oil.
  • Add the onion and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until tender and lightly browned on the edges, about 7 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and thyme; stir until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • Add the Sue Bee® honey, tomatoes, broth, salt and pepper.
  • Bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring frequently, until reduced by a quarter and thickened, about 15 minutes.
  • Using a standard or immersion blender, puree about half the soup; it will still be chunky and thick.
  • Return it to the pot and stir in the cream.
  • Heat gently and adjust the seasonings.
  • Ladle into bowls, sprinkle with the parsley if using, and serve immediately.
