Heat the olive oil in a dutch oven or large soup pot.
Saute the garlic until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
Add the crushed tomatoes, diced tomatoes, vegetable broth, and sugar to the pot and stir. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, blend the raw cashews with the water in a high-speed blender until completely smooth. (If your blender isn't high-speed, soak the cashews in advance to soften, then drain before blending.)
Once the soup is hot and simmering, slowly pour the cashew mixture into the soup while stirring.
Stir in the basil and allow the soup to return to a simmer.
Taste, add salt as needed, and enjoy!
