Rated 5 out of 5 by Caitlyn from So yummy This soup was amazing!! I was confused at first because there isn’t a measurement of ginger to add, so I eye balled it. It’s creamy, sweet, and the maple cream is to die for. My daughter has a dairy allergy. We subbed Greek yogurt for plain Kite Hill Almond milk yogurt. I will Be making this for a long time coming.

Rated 3 out of 5 by chicago59 from confused adding ginger is mentioned in the instructions, however, there is no measurement amount given in the ingredient list! Is this fresh ginger or ground ginger? And how much?

Rated 5 out of 5 by new to vitamix from Question The recipe states to mix in maple syrup after returning the soup to the pan after blending it. But the only maple syrup mentioned in the recipe is as part of the yogurt garnish. How much maple syrup should be mixed directly into the soup?

Rated 5 out of 5 by alekpushkin from Which part of the green onion to add? Which part of the green onions to add? Adding raw onion to soups can have disastrous consequences.
