Quick Tomato Bisque

Want a Quick Tomato Bisque without the all day work?  This recipe delivers that slow cooked taste with minimal effort.  I would highly suggest using Cento brand crushed tomatoes. The ingredients only say "crushed tomatoes" and no added stuff.  And I wish they were paying me to tell you that, but they aren't.  I just believe in their product.  Throw this soup on and serve it with a grilled cheese sandwich for a hearty easy meal!

3 T butter
1 onion, chopped
One 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes (I recommend Cento brand)
2 T chopped fresh basil
1 teaspoon mustard powder
1 pint heavy cream
1/4 C flour
1 C chicken stock
2 cloves garlic, minced
Salt & pepper, to taste
One small can tomato paste
Croutons, for serving

Melt the butter in a large pot.  Cook the onion and garlic until tender, about 5 minutes.  Whisk in the flour.  Next whisk in the chicken stock.  Add in the tomatoes, heavy cream, mustard powder, salt & pepper, and tomato paste and whisk until smooth.  Bring it to a slight bubble and cook until it's thickened.  Stir in the fresh basil and serve with the croutons on top.
