Granny T's veggie Soup

I had a special request for this recipe today and I totally thought I had it up...but no!
So, Amber...here it is!

! medium onion chopped
2 cloves Garlic minced
4 stalks celery, chopped
3 medium carrots chopped
4 medium potatoes chopped into chunks
1 cup frozen peas
1 12ounce can stewed or diced tomatoes
4 Tablespoons tomato paste (honestly, my grandma used ketchup for this)
1 Tablespoon dried Basil
1 Tablespoon Balsalmic vinegar
1 Tablespoon sugar
Salt to taste

Saute onions and celery in a soup pot over medium high heat with 2 Tablespoons olive oil
after 2 minutes add carrots and garlic and a couple of pinches of Salt
Continue sauteing until onions are translucent. Add potatoes, Tomatoes and paste and dried Basil, then add enough water to float all the vegetables, about 4 cups. Bring to a simmer and cook slowly until potatoes are done. Add Peas, vinegar and sugar and check for salt. then cozy up with a nice hunk of bread and say hi to my grandma while your at it...enjoy!
