  • Using a handheld blender (or a countertop blender, in batches), puree soup until smooth. (If using countertop blender, return mixture to pot.) While still hot, stir in brown sugar and salt.

  • Ladle soup into 8 bowls. Garnish with a dollop of crème fraîche and sliced chives, if desired.

Tips

Save time and let flavors deepen: Make soup in advance and store, airtight, in fridge.
