I've made a similar soup with my tomato harvest in years past. I love baking them with the onions and garlic. It adds a sweet and savory flavor that makes it taste like a bunch of work.

When I blend my soup, I add in the fresh basil then. I like the green bits in the red liquid and the liquorice flavor doesn't cook out as much. I've even just added chopped basil right to the bowl.

I also like to garnish with fresh basil. I have also added bell pepper and it gives a nice roasted kick. :)
