Good warm and cold, this bright tasting soup can be made ahead and frozen. Of course you can use fresh tomatoes instead of canned. In the absence of basil, parsley or chives would be an acceptable alternative. I use a stick blender to purée this soup in the pot.
- Fry diced onion in oil until onion is oft and begins to brown.
- Add carrots, peeled and diced, and curry powder. Cover and cook until carrots are tender.
