This is my favorite First Of The Fall soup, brought on by the first cold snap of the season.
Take a large pot add 2 tbsp oil oil and begin to heat.
Dice and throw into the pot:
7 cloves of garlic
one large white onion
2 big carrots
3 stalks of celery
1 sweet potato
Stir this around until the vegetables all have a little bit of browning happening.
Then I add a giant can of chopped tomatoes
One can of fatfree chicken broth
One can of water
Salt and pepper
1 tbsp each:
1 bay leaf
about 30 fresh basil leaves
I let this cook at least 45 minutes, but it often ends up simmering for 2-3 hours because I like the flavor of the tomato after it hits that breakdown point.
