  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Lightly grease a large baking sheet, set aside.

  2. Combine tomatoes, onion, and garlic in a large bowl. Toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper and stir until evenly distributed.

  3. Spread tomato mixture onto a prepared baking sheet in a single layer and roast for 15 minutes.

  4. Remove from oven, stir, and roast for an additional 15 minutes, broiling during the last 3 minutes so that some of the tomatoes get lightly charred.

  5. Add roasted tomato mixture to the container of a high-powered blender, making sure to scrape all the contents of the baking sheet into the blender.

  6. Add fresh basil and blend mixture on high speed until smooth (about 50 seconds).

  7. In a large pot, melt butter over medium-high heat.

  8. Add flour to melted butter and whisk to combine. Cook until the butter and flour mixture is golden brown (30-60 seconds).

  9. Add broth and sugar and whisk to combine.

  10. Add the blended mixture to the pot and whisk to combine. If desired (for a creamier soup), add ¼ to ½ cup heavy cream. Cook over medium-low heat for 15 minutes, taste, and adjust salt and pepper as desired.

  11. Serve warm with croutons, chopped fresh basil, etc.
