  1. Over a medium heat, sauté the onion and sugar in olive oil until slightly browned, about 8 or 9 minutes.  Stir frequently to keep from sticking.

  3. Add basil, salt, pepper, celery salt, and thyme, stirring to incorporate with onion mix.

  4. Add tomatoes and stock. Turn heat to medium high and bring to a boil.  Once it starts boiling, turn heat back to simmer and cook for 30-40 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.

  5. Purée soup with an immerser or in a blender until velvety smooth.  Adjust seasonings.

1. Make it creamy: Add 1 cup cream or milk of choice when soup is done. Turn off heat.

2. Allium free: Omit onion and garlic. Use entire fennel bulb and follow directions for onions.

3. Add a garnish:Add croutons, chopped basil or chives or a few roasted grape tomatoes to each bowl before serving.

4. Make it cheesy:Grate a bit of Parmesan Cheese over each bowl before serving.
