1 bunch celery, cut into 1-inch pieces
1-1/2 pounds whole baby carrots, peeled

One 15-ounce can stewed tomatoes
1 quart beef stock
1 cup pearl onions

Add celery pieces and brown edges; remove and reserve. Add flour to remaining oil, making a roux. Brown slightly, stirring often. Add half of the stock and blend with roux until smooth.
