Rated 5 out of 5 by Kawellm from Wonderful Ginger Flavor My whole family loved this. The fresh ginger is refreshing and the creaminess of the soup is divine. This is an easy recipe to make, which is a plus for a busy family. I made a recipe and a half to feed my family of 5. I also loved that it can be made vegan and no one would know it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ayesha108 from Highly palatable This recipe was delicious, the carrot fibre added a comforting thick feel to the soup. I also added a tablespoon of miso -will be making this again for sure

Rated 5 out of 5 by Khicks from Delicious I made this soup for the first time last night. It was so easy and really delicious. The ginger flavour was just perfect. It was the first time I've used my Vitamix to heat a soup as well as blend and I was surprised how easy it was.

Rated 5 out of 5 by missdawes from a really nice way to use tofu My husband doesn't like tofu, so I made this soup for myself. However, he tasted it - and liked it so much that I gave him a small bowl. I am certain that I could make it for both of us, and he'd be perfectly happy. The texture of this soup is really nice. The tofu thickens it up. I don't normally cook with white pepper - but the addition of this and the FOUR cloves of garlic really made the difference. I'll definitely be making this again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Paxton31 from Used the Perfect Blend App - Not good This recipe can also be found in the Vitamix Perfect Blend app. However, it calls for 1/2 cup (50g) of ginger. Because I am a Vitamix nube I wanted to follow the directions exactly. WAY TOO GINGERY and I LOVE ginger. This recipe on the website looks to have the correct measurements. I will try again without the app.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Matthew729 from Easy and Delicious! I got my Vitamix a few days ago and thought it would primarily be for smoothies, but when I saw this recipe it seemed worth a try. While I love soup, I've had very little experience making my own. I followed the recipe almost exactly, but doubled the garlic because, well, garlic! It took less than 20 minutes to make and was incredibly delicious. My vegan friend was definitely impressed. I'm looking forward to making this again and trying lots more of the recipes on this site.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Clau from Great colour and so smooth! I made this soup many times. The ginger is too strong for young children. I cut back on ginger or omit all together. I also added extra tofu for increased thickness. The colour and taste of the soup is very nice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by StephGM from Not Kid Friendly Pretty good soup. Definitely not kid friendly. The texture was great and the thickness was perfect. Just had too much ginger spice..... Almost even for me. Also I have the new VitaMix that has a soup button option amd wasnt sure if I had to saute or just use the soup button? So I did both. Probably wont ever make again.
