  1. Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add first part of cooking oil and then garlic, onions, and carrots to heated oil with a sprinkle of salt, first part of red pepper flakes, and basil. Saute for ~5 minutes.
  2. Add tomatoes, broth, and some salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 4 to 6 minutes.
