PrintEmail Jill suggests using an immersion blender to whirl up this soup to a smooth or chunky consistency. It's easy and safe for kids to use. The bit of brown sugar stirred in at the end is Jill’s signature; she always adds it to tomato recipes to balance the acidity. Hold the vinegar until you taste the soup; because tomatoes vary in acidity, you might not need it.
