This is a white bean recipe fit for serving with good china, cloth napkins, and candle light. It will take some planning and work on your part, but the result will be worth it. A spoonful of white bean sherry puree is a healthy substitute for the heavy cream that’s usually served with bisque. If it’s not lobster season at your house then substitute the lobster broth with a purchased seafood broth.

Our special white bean lobster bisque recipe is also the perfect way to warm up as we roll into the colder weather months. It even keeps well in your refrigerator and is a great leftover option for football watching or a quick and easy dinner with crackers or potatoes.
