This soup is delicious. I did not have 2 lbs of tomatoes so I substituted a large can of crushed tomatoes with basil and kept everything else the same. It was fantastic!

  2. Add the flour, and stir for about 3 minutes, or until the flour is fully incorporated into the mixture.
  3. Stir in the sugar, chicken stock, and tomato paste. Simmer, partially covered, for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
  4. Puree the soup mixture in a food processor and return ro the pot. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  5. Just before serving, add the basil. Serve with a dollop of yogurt, if desired.
