  1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven or heavy stockpot over medium-low heat; cook and stir onion and garlic in hot oil until tender, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes to onion mixture, crushing with a potato masher. Stir bread, basil, and brown sugar into tomato mixture and simmer until bread is completely saturated and starts to break down, about 10 minutes.
  2. Pour tomato mixture into a blender no more than half full; add butter. Cover and hold lid down; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend. Puree in batches until smooth. Return pureed soup to Dutch oven over medium heat; add broth and simmer until heated through, about 5 minutes. Season soup with salt and pepper.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • I recommend using home-canned tomatoes.
  • Substitute 1 tablespoon dried basil for the fresh basil, if desired.

Great tasting soup. I substituted canned crushed tomatoes for the whole tomatoes - saved a little work mashing them. Came out perfect. Served it with grilled cheese. It was delicious.

Replaced brown sugar with white and instead of bread I added steamed cauliflower to thicken and give it a creamy look.
