Ingredients

2

2
medium carrots, finely chopped (1/2 cup)
1

1
clove garlic, finely chopped
6
large tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped (6 cups)*
1
can (8 oz) tomato sauce
1/4
cup thinly sliced fresh basil leaves or 2 teaspoons dried basil leaves
1/2
teaspoon sugar
1/4
teaspoon salt
Dash of pepper

Directions

  • 1 In 3-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Cook carrots, onion and garlic in oil about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender but not browned.

Tips  

Fully ripe, juicy tomatoes provide the best flavor in this soup. If your tomatoes aren’t completely ripe, you may need to increase the salt and sugar just a bit.

3 cans (14.5 oz each) diced tomatoes, undrained, can be substituted for the fresh tomatoes. Omit salt; increase sugar to 1 teaspoon.
