Tomato Basil Veggie bisque 

1 red pepper diced

1 bag of shredded carrots

2 large cans organic crushed tomato 

1 large potato or 2 small potatoes diced

1 cup of diced onions

1 cup of diced celery 

1 carton of Chicken stock

2 fresh Garlic bulbs

1 tbsp sugar

1/4 cup of red wine (optional) 

1/4 cup coconut milk

1/2 tsp Garlic salt

Pinch of red pepper

Salt & pepper to taste

2-3 Tbsp of fresh Basil or 1 tbsp of dried

1 tsp of Oregano

Directions

For a quick dinner, check out my short cuts:  

Heat 3 Tbsp of olive oil in a large stock pot

  

Add the onions, celery, and potatoes. Once the onions began to turn, add garlic, carrots, and red pepper.

  

Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring half way. Add 1/4 cup of red wine, and chicken broth.

  

Place the lid on and bring to a boil for 7-10 minutes.

Add crushed tomato, coconut milk, and fresh herbs and spices.

  

 Then whip out your immersion blender and blend until smooth. Or, pour into a large processor or blender to purée.  

 
Simmer on low for 5-10 more minutes.

Serve on its own, or with a drizzle of coconut cream, or topped with your favorite meat.
