  • 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!
