After coming home to make dinner… I was kind of tired and wanted something quick. Well I didn’t realize how fast I could actually make dinner (under 7 minutes). It was a tomato bisque with a kick! You can make it without the serrano pepper too and it is great regardless. I topped the soup with a delicious garlic infused cashew sour cream, and YEAH!!! I actually made the sour cream first and put it in the freezer while I made the bisque. Then I didn’t even clean out the blender very well so I still had enough cashew cream to make the bisque nice and creamy. Add some cilantro on top because it is good for detoxifying and tastes great too!
- 1 -28 oz. can of organic diced tomatoes (I can’t wait until it’s summer for fresh tomatoes)
- 1 cup water
- handful of raw cashews (optional, but make creamier)
- 1 Serrano pepper (optional for a kick)
Blend these up in a blender and then heat on stove until desired temperature. You can even add some fresh or frozen corn to give it more texture and a slightly sweeter flavor. I added corn because the serrano was a little too spicy for me.
Garlic-Infused Sour Cream
- 1 cup raw cashews (soak them first if you don’t have a high-speed blender)
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
- 1 garlic clove
- pinch of salt
If using a high speed blender add a little bit of water and blend until super thick and creamy (almost as thick as sour cream). Then put in freezer while heating up soup to thicken and spoon it on top. If using a food processor make sure to soak the cashews ahead of time (at least 4 hours… can even soak overnight for convenience) and only add water as needed. You may want to double this recipe to have some amazing sour cream on hand… keeps in refrigerator for about a week.
