  3. Making the soup: Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a pot placed onto the cook surface. Add the diced onion and minced garlic and cook for seven to ten minutes. Add the flour and cook for two minutes. Add the tomatoes, the tomato paste, sugar, and vegetable broth, and heat to a boil.

Keep the soup warm on the grill while making the grilled cheese sandwiches.
