This soup is a favourite of mine. With fresh basil picked straight from my garden and juicy red tomatoes, it can't get any better.

When tomatoes start to get soft strain them over another saucepan to keep the liquid.

In a small saucepan add some olive oil and sauté the onions and garlic until almost soft.

Take off the skins from the tomatoes and place back into the liquid.

Add the onion, garlic, celery, and basil leaves to the stock mixture and cook until tomatoes and onions are really soft.
