  • 1 small yellow onion , chopped small, 3/4 cup
  • 1 stick butter , 8 tbsp
  • 1 tsp dried dill weed
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 28 oz can San Marzano tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 cups chicken broth (I use Better Than Bouillon Roasted Chicken Base)
  • 12 oz. V-8 juice , or vegetable juice
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley, plus additional for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream


  • Saute onions with butter, dill, and oregano in a 4 qt. saucepan until onions are softened.
  • Add flour, cook and stir for 2 minutes.
  • Add tomatoes, chicken stock, and V-8, whisking in gradually to prevent lumping. Add chopped parsley, salt, and pepper and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Next, use a blender to puree the bisque. This is best done in 2 batches. Place the first batch in a bowl when finished, then puree the remaining soup. (An immersion blender will work also). When finished, return the bisque to the saucepan and reheat, then stir in the honey and cream.
  • Serve hot and garnish with a drizzle of cream, and chopped parsley or fresh dill if desired.


  1. This recipe makes approximately 2 quarts, (64 ounces), of bisque.
  2. Be careful when blending hot liquid. It's best to remove the blender's fill cap from the cover and use a towel to cover the fill hole to allow any steam and pressure to release.
  3. My blender took about 1 minute to puree each batch on low speed.
  4. Store leftovers in a covered bowl or jar in the refrigerator up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
