Roasted Red Pepper, Tomato and Smoked Gouda Bisque – Low Carb, Gluten Free

This soup is so good, that I want to bathe in it.  Okay, not really, but it is delicious.  I used all organic products when I made this soup.  You do not have to, but I always like to type up the recipes listing exactly what I used. This soup can even be made ahead of time and frozen for later… If there is any left over to freeze.  Enjoy!

1 Medium Onion – Diced
3 Large Cloves Garlic – Minced
3 Tbs. Butter
2 – 14.5 oz. Cans Organic Fire Roasted Tomatoes
3 Cups Chicken Stock
2 tsp. Dried Basil

1 tsp. Dried Oregano
½ tsp. Black Pepper

Heat slow cooker on low setting.
To the slow cooker , add tomatoes, roasted red peppers, chicken stock, tomato paste, basil, salt, oregano, and black pepper.

Add Sauteed onions to slow cooker, cover and cook on low for 4 hours.
After 4 hours, transfer soup to a blender and puree until smooth.  (I used my Vitamix for this step) Pour soup back into slow cooker.

    Hi Kyndra-

    Does this recipe have to be cooked on low for 4 hours? I would like to make this for dinner- or pre-make it; however, I get home too late from work to cook it on low for that long…can I cook it on high for 2 hours? What would you recommend? We love all of your recipes so I know this will be just as delish as the others : )

    This particular bisque showed up in our local fresh foods market. I picked it up rather than my usual loaded bake potato soup. OMG! The roasted red pepper and gouda bisque was excellent. I don’t know if I have the patience to make it myself, but I might try because it is just that good!

    How about a dairy free option? What do you think about coconut milk? I would still mix in the smoked Gouda in a separate pot for my husband. Maybe add som smoked turkey for me? Thoughts?

    I do not normally comment on recipes I try, but this is simply delicious. I made it on the stove top at a high boil and it turned out great. The chef at our hosptial makes this soup and my co-workers and I are always sure to go and get some! SO happy to have a recipe I can make it home and I have already passed it on at everyone! Great work!

    I made this the other night for myself with the intention of freezing the leftovers but as you predicted there weren’t any!! I have never bothered leaving comments on recipes before but this soup was so good I had to come back and write something. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe with us!!

    For those of you that want to make this in less time you can definitely do it on the stove or on high in the slow cooker but if you have the time to cook it on low I would encourage you to do so.

    Hi, Can’t wait to try this recipe.!

    Do you drain the red peppers or add in the liquid that the peppers are packed in as well.?

    Hi, I made this soup and the cheese didn’t melt. Also, it seemed a little watery, but I didn’t cook it on low, I was in a hurry and cooked it 3 hours on high. Did anyone else have this problem?

  8. Victoria says

    Can this be done with chicken broth instead of chicken stock if that is what i have in my pantry? or can I use vegetable stock?

  9. says

    My mom just made this and it’s divine! Seriously, SO GOOD. I took some home and my boyfriend also loved it. So much that he said so, several times. Can’t wait to make this at home. And I’m so excited that it’s a slow-cooker recipe! Right up my alley :)
