Hurricane
This rich velvety soup is a wonderful way to begin this festive meal.  If you can find jarred or frozen peeled chestnuts, it will cut down on your preparation time considerably.  If using fresh chestnuts, see the preparation instructions following in this recipe and plan to prepare them in advance. (Peeled chestnuts are sold at Asian markets at a fraction of the cost in supermarkets.) For a thinner but still rich soup, add up to one cup of almond milk close to serving time.Adapted from "Party Vegan" by Robin Robertson.

Lobster Bisque
I love, love, love lobster. Simply steamed and served with butter, or lightly dressed with mayo and loaded into a toasted hot dog bun that can barely contain it — as long as lobster is on the menu, I'm a happy camper. For this recipe, I turned to the master, Thomas Keller, for inspiration — adapting recipes for creamy lobster broth and butter-poached lobster that are featured in his exquisite French Laundry Cookbook. The result is a rich, incredibly decadent treat, with a flavor to match the amount of work that goes into making it. I recommend serving it in a little cup or bowl as a starter to an elegant meal.

bisque
If you have enough time on your hands for this labor of love, it's well worth it. There's no denying that this is quite an intricate process but it's a very engaging dish to cook and extremely satisfactory when it all comes together in the end. Especially if you have a lovely glass of white wine to enjoy it with!

Crab Bisque
Sautéing the shells — be they crab, shrimp, or crawfish — is the true secret to a good rich bisque and the key to its signature nutty flavor. The farther west you go in Louisiana, the less cream and the more rice you’ll find in the bisque.Adapted from My New Orleans: The Cookbook by John Besh.Click here to see A Big Easy Dinner Menu.

Curried Butternut Squash and Pear Bisque
This is easy-to-make soup uses water instead of stock. Pears, winter squash, and apple cider all appear on farm stands at about the same time, and their varying degrees of sweetness have a natural affinity for one another. Curry powder adds an exotic kick and helps balance the sweetness of the other ingredients. Recipe courtesy of chef Vitaly Paley.

Creamy Onion, Leek, and Shallot Bisque
This is a soup for onion lovers. Caramelized onions, leeks, and shallots (or only onions if you prefer) are puréed with chicken stock and then combined with sherry, sautéed onion, and a splash of cream at the end. What makes it so delicious are the fried leeks—and the Gruyère crostini, a contemporary interpretation of the typical (and often too heavy) cheese topping on many onion soups. Pass any extras at the table. They’re yummy! — Soups for Two by Joanna Pruess Click Here for More Soup Recipes

Tomato Bisque
This soup couldn’t be any easier to make. Everything just gets plunked into a blender and pureed. My next door neighbor declared, “That tomato soup was the best soup I ever had in my life!” Fresh herbs make this soup a winner. The taste is gourmet, but the preparation couldn’t be simpler. Tomatoes are a carotene-rich food, and studies confirm that eating more carotene-rich foods will reduce not only your risk of cancer, but also your risks of heart disease, hypertension, and stroke.
