This bisque is quite tasty, however the texture is a little odd due to the apples. I followed the recipe except I used a combination of apples and pears. It added to the overall flavor. Also, I finished it off the way you would French Onion soup. I topped each soup bowl with a slice of multi-grain baguette and a thin slice of swiss cheese and put it under the broiler. The swiss cheese and the apple flavor of the soup really went well together. You could also use cheddar or really any mild cheese that pair well with apple/pears. This recipe is also very filling as is. Its quite delicious and something different. A great thing to make on a rainy fall evening. My husband loved it! I would definitely make it again.
