Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy-bottomed pot over medium-low heat. Add the onions and carrots and saute for about 10 minutes, until very tender. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, sugar, tomato paste, basil, chicken stock, salt, and pepper and stir well.
Now, I make a lot of my soups from scratch, but I've never been crazy about any of the homemade tomato soups I've made from scratch in the past. Ha!

This Garden Fresh Tomato Soup is a simple and delicious way to enjoy summer's bounty. Use whatever kinds of tomatoes you have on hand.
