Crawfish Mushroom Bisque

2 stalks celery
4 oz. mushrooms
4 lg. garlic cloves
1 med. purple shallot
6 skinny green onions
2T butter
½t black pepper
1-2t Old Bay Seasoning
1-2t good lemon pepper*

6oz. dry white wine
13.76oz. crushed tomatoes
1# crawfish tail meat

6oz. Alfredo sauce
6oz. sour cream
6oz. half & half

Finely chop all the vegetables in the first group.  I used my chopper for this.  Saute' them, in a heavy-bottomed, 3½ quart pot, stirring often, for about 10 minutes.  Season at the beginning or after this step.  (*A good lemon pepper is one that doesn't have salt first on the list of ingredients.  This one is excellent.  Black pepper, salt, vegetables and lemon peel.)

Add the second group of ingredients and simmer-saute' another 15 minutes.  Add the last group and turn heat very low.  Simmer on a very low bubble while stirring for another 5 minutes.  Serve with some crunched up croutons.  This turned out so well!  I've had many Lobster Bisques that weren't this good.  The crawfish was probably the best $5.00 I've ever spent on a cooking adventure. 😋 . . .
