Chop the onions and fresh tomatoes into small pieces and finely chop the garlic and keep aside.

If you don't have access to good quality fresh tomatoes (which would be understandable, as it is October), Muir Glen makes fire-roasted canned tomatoes that are my favorite to use for soup.

I like an oven roasted version: Heat oven to 425. Mix seeded fresh tomatoes, onions, whole peeled garlic, s&p, and olive oil in a roasting pan and roast until blackened in spots (30 mins or so). Add to a pot with some chicken broth; simmer for 20 mins. Add fresh basil. Blend with a hand blender or in a regular blender until smooth. Add some cream or whole milk. Enjoy!
