A bisque is a rich, creamy soup of French origin. The word bisque is derived from bis quit, or “twice cooked”, writes Clifford A. Wright in his book “The Best Soups in the World.” You can make a delicious and easy tomato bisque simply by adding milk and butter to a can of tomato soup.

Calories

The nutritional information applies to one 8-oz. cup of tomato bisque soup made from mixing canned tomato soup, whole milk and half a stick of salted butter. A cup of tomato bisque contains 149 calories, which is about 7 percent of the recommended daily value for calories, based on a daily diet of 2,000 calories.

Protein, Fat, Carbohydrates

The calories in a cup of tomato bisque consist of 24 calories from protein, 40 calories from fat and 85 calories from carbohydrates. Tomato bisque contains 22 g of carbohydrates per cup, which is 7 percent of the daily value for carbohydrates.

Health Benefits

Tomato bisque soup is a healthy food choice based on the natural benefits of tomatoes. Processed tomatoes in canned soup are even more potent because the cooking concentrates the levels of lycopene, beta-carotene, B-complex, iron, potassium and vitamin C.
