    Julie B's Hive's Note:

    From the Sunset Low-Fat Cookbook, recipe is based on canned tomato purée. Top off with Herbed Cheese Croutons (recipe included). The deglazing (3 times) makes this one a bit time-consuming but gives the soup its good flavor. I prefer using the dried basil over the fresh in this recipe and a little chunkier than the usual smooth tomato soup.

      In a 3-4 quart pan, combine oil, onion, carrot, and 1 cup of the the chicken broth. Bring to a boil over high heat; boil, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until liquid evaporates and vegetables begin to brown (about 10 minutes). To deglaze, add 3 tbsp water and stir to scrape browned bit free. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture begins to brown again. Repeat deglazing and browning steps 2 more times, using 3 tbsp water each time; vegetable mixture should be golden brown.
