Whip up your own lobster bisque this fall in the almighty convenient appliance that is the Instant Pot.
“When the weather starts cooling down, there is no food that says fall to me more than a bowl of warm soup. And, I especially love soups that are hearty enough to be a one-and-done meal, like my lightened-up lobster bisque,” she tells Fox News. “This bisque is filled with nutritious veggies and protein-rich lobster, which also provides selenium and omega-3s for a healthy heart, brain and immune system.”
“When the weather starts cooling down, there is no food that says fall to me more than a bowl of warm soup,” Rima Kleiner tells FOX News.

Kleiner says making lobster bisque at home isn’t as difficult as it sounds.
“If you only eat a lobster bisque at restaurants, I encourage you to try this recipe. It’s very simple, straightforward and puts your Instant Pot to good use,” says Kleiner. “Plus, I used less half-and-half than most recipes call for, swapped the olive oil for butter and relied on a lot of herbs and seasonings to add rich flavor. And it’s so flavorful, you’ll be the only one who knows this bisque is lightened up and nutrient-rich.”
You can even buy frozen lobster meat online at LukesLobster.com, WildForkFoods.com, and other gourmet retailers. Keep a bag in your freezer for when a hankering for lobster bisque or lobster rolls strikes.
