To store, cover with plastic film and place in the fridge. It can stay there for up to three days. Thin with water before reheating. For a healthier recipe, consider mashing your own potatoes instead of buying them canned and try whole grain flours. This recipe was submitted by Emma Claire from CookNovel.com.
Finely Mince onion, celery stalks, and garlic. In a large stock pot, melt butter and saute your onion, celery and garlic until softened. Gradually add the all-purpose flour and whisk until incorporated. Gradually add stock, then the rest of the ingredients one by one, stirring between each to make sure it blends properly. Add salt and pepper to taste. Lower the heat and let it simmer for about 15 to 20 min. If your bisque is too watery, add more flour. If texture is too thick, add a bit of water or more broth. The texture should be rather thick. Garnish and serve.
Garnish with cream or chopped herbs.
