Tomato Bisque with Fonio Chips

Tomato Bisque with Fonio Chips

Mmmm….creamy tomato bisque is the soup of my dreams whether it’s warm or cold out. It’s a classic, nostalgic soup that always brings me back to my childhood days of coming home from school and having a bowl with a grilled cheese sandwich on the side! But this tomato bisque recipe isn't your ordinary soup-from-a-can recipe. I used canned crushed tomatoes, herbs, and spices to really boost the flavor and texture of the dish and I serve it with crunchy fonio chips and parmesan cheese to add the perfect amount of crunch and seasoning to the soup. My favorite thing about using fonio chips as a topping? They don't get soggy in the bowl, so you can enjoy those extra crunchy cheesy bits until the very last spoonful!
