Peel and remove ends of yellow onion; slice into thirds crosswise. Place roma tomatoes and onions onto grill over high heat for approx. 5 minutes per side until roasted, but not burnt.

Melt butter in medium saucepan over high heat. Add flour and whisk until well blended for 1 minute. Continue to cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently until light blonde in color.

Add roasted tomatoes and onions. Sauté 2 minutes to blend flavors.

Add water, broth, Bay leaves, chicken base and tomato paste; mix thoroughly. Bring to boil over high heat; turn down to low and simmer for 30 minutes.

In separate large stockpot, heat 1 cup olive oil; add diced onion celery and bell pepper. Sauté until soft and translucent.

Add roux to roasted tomato and onion mixture. Blend all with mixer until smooth. Strain blended mixture into sautéed onions, celery and peppers using china cap.

Add Cajun seasoning, cayenne and black pepper, Worcestershire sauce and canned diced tomatoes; blend all together and let simmer for 20-25 minutes on low heat.

Prepare Andouille sausage; while semi-frozen, trim ends and slice 1/8" on the bias.
