3 minced Garlic cloves
1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Thyme
1 tsp Cayenne Pepper

Add Salt and Pepper to taste


  1. In a pot, brown your onions in butter for about 5 minutes.

  9. Bring to a boil and let it reduce to about half.
  10. Add everything to a blender and blend it until it becomes smooth.
  11. Transfer the blended mix back into the pot.
  12. Now add the cooking cream and stir.
  13. Add the thyme and cayenne pepper to the bisque
  14. Balance the seasonings in the bisque with Salt and Pepper
