Ginger Paste

A great base for cooking Asian food, and as a replacement for powdered ginger in baking.


  • 1 1/2 cups (150 g) fresh ginger root, unpeeled


  1. Place ginger into the Vitamix container and secure lid.
  2. Select Variable 1.
  3. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High.
  4. Blend for 45 seconds, using the tamper to press the ginger into the blades.
  5. Cover a baking sheet with plastic wrap and place rounded teaspoons 1/2-inch (1.3 cm) apart.
  6. Freeze until solid and store in plastic bag.

Use half the amount of ginger paste if a recipe calls for ground ginger. Keep refrigerated 3 weeks or in the freezer for 6 months.

This recipe has been written for the C-Series and G-Series machines with Variable Speed control and 64-ounce container. If you are using a different Vitamix machine or container size, you may need to make adjustments to the Variable Speed, processing time, and/or ingredient quantities.
