Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

This bisque, using simple, commonly found ingredients, is a quick and easy way to get tons of vitamin C and to use up basil that’s abundant in the summer. It makes a great side for sandwiches, or topped with corn and other veggies, can make for a light main dish. Free of gluten and other common food irritants, it’s a soothing delicious soup for IBS sufferers. It can even be served hot or cold!
