A good tomato-basil bisque is like a little sip from Heaven, and this easy recipe will have you making your own. Sun-dried tomatoes are subbed for regular romas to give it a rich, smoky flavor. This recipe freezes and thaws well for homemade make-ahead meals.


    1 16-oz chicken broth
    1 12-oz coconut milk
    1 pkg frozen cauliflower
    1 jar sun-dried tomatoes
    Fresh basil (to taste)
    Sea Salt

In a large saucepan, combine chicken broth, cauliflower and sun-dried tomatoes. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer 20-25 minutes or until cauliflower and tomatoes are tender. Use a handblender to blend ingredients into a creamy mix, then add coconut milk, garlic and rosemary, and 3/4 of the basic and blend again. Cover and simmer 5 more minutes, then salt to taste. Can be topped with basil leaves and parmesan when served.
