COOK TIME
35 Min

According to the dictionary, bisque is a thick cream soup. According to my family, it's a tasty meal all in one bowl.

What You'll Need

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 plum tomato, diced
  • 1 celery stalk, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 cups ready-to-use chicken broth
  • 3 medium-sized potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 4 cups (1 quart) heavy cream
  • 3 cans (6 ounces each) crabmeat, drained and flaked

What to Do

  1. In a 6-quart soup pot, melt the butter over high heat and sauté the onion, tomato, celery, garlic, and paprika for 5 to 6 minutes, or until the onion is tender. Stir in the flour until well mixed. Add the chicken broth and potatoes and cook for 10 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork-tender. Reduce the heat to low; stir in the cream, then the crabmeat. Simmer for 15 to 18 minutes, or until the soup is hot, stirring occasionally. Do not allow to boil.

Notes

For more color, I like to serve this garnished with sliced scallions.
