Creamy tomato soup, this soup is perfect to enjoy the day after so you can make it ahead. Goes great with a grill cheese sandwich.
Melt the butter in a large stockpot over medium-low heat. Add the onions, garlic, thyme, bay leaf and peppercorns; cover and cook for about 5 minutes.
Do not let the onions color. Add tomato paste and lightly brown the tomato paste. Add the fresh tomatoes, and water if needed.
Simmer over low heat, 30-40 minutes, until the tomatoes and onions are very soft and broken down. Puree through a food mill. If you don’t have a food mill, you may use a blender in batches, or a hand blender until finished, then strain.
Return the mixture to the pot. Add the cream, half-and-half, salt, and white pepper. Bring the creamy tomato soup to a simmer then remove from heat. Allow the tomato bisque soup to cool for a minimum of 2 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.
Across from a row of rough board stands selling vegetables, fruits and local crafts is Number 59 Avenue de la Justice in the city of Kinshasa. A plain, white storefront with a small sign at the side of the front door: Alimentation la Baviere. Baviere is a little Portuguese-run grocery store. During the years of my weekly shopping trips there, the makings for this traditional Portuguese soup were always on the shelves.
