      I really enjoyed the caramelized onion and ginger in this recipe. I wasn't sure about the brown sugar, but the final product wasn't as sweet as I thought it would be. I prefer a little bit chunkier of a soup, so I left about one cup of soup out while I pureed the rest in the VitaMix and then combined them before serving. My only change would be to note in the instructions when to add the chicken stock. I began to simmer the tomatoes before realizing it wasn't in the instructions so I added the stock at that time. The fresh ingredients are what make this simple dish so amazing. I topped off my bowl with a few shreds of fresh Parmesan cheese. Thanks for a quick and easy, but great tasting soup, James! :D Made & enjoyed for the Topic of the Month forum's Soup-Fest! tag game.
