Rated 3 out of 5 by ccp56 from Nice flavors. Lousy instructions. Please define "a slice of pepper", "slice of cabbage" etc. I get the concept that there might be flexibility in the ingredient list, but this is strange. Watched a video with more specifics. Still turned out a bit water-y. I added more cashews and pureed a bit longer. The end result was quite good. Used a whole carrot, 4 inch hunk of zucchini, 1/4 of a pepper and a big handful of cabbage. New to the Vitamix and experimenting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hicksie_dust from Delicious! I saw this recipe being made at a demonstration and tried to recreate at home. The result was awesome. The cashews make this so creamy and you can put more or less ginger and garlic in it depending on how spicy you like it. The recipe says it takes 15 minutes but I was done in under 10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lena K from One of the tastiest soups from Vitamix I tried it at the demonstration and was sold on the idea of Vitamix from that moment. I keep using 1/2 red pepper, half of zucchini, 1 cm of a chilli pepper and the result is always amazing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Susie2111 from Delicious and creamy Bought myself a Vitamix as a Christmas present after wanting one for two years, having seen demos at the Good Food Show. Made this recipe as it was one shown at the demo, that was so tasty! Very easy to make. After reading other reviews I varied the quantities slightly, using 1/2 a courgette and 1/2 a pepper, a 1cm slice of onion instead of a spring onion, omitted the celery as I didn't have any, used 2 slices of lemon (not peeled) and 1tsp dried coriander leaf, instead of 1tbsp fresh. I did need to add a little more water at the end, as with these extra quantities it was just a bit too thick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Benski from Soupa This is a delicious soup. Nice if you like Asian flavours and very creamy thanks to the cashews. I added a little more chilli and garlic as I prefer extra spicy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RobinE from My Husband's Favorite Soup While the directions leave some portions to your imagination, I have no trouble taking these ingredients and turning them into a tasty soup. Fun fact: I accidently used a jalapeno pepper instead of a chili pepper the first time. The second I used a chili pepper and my husband noted it was "missing that great bite" so I went back to the jalapeno and it does add a cool kick to the recipe. This is super easy and very satisfying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by velouria06 from Husband said it was excellent The Vitamix demo guy made a soup similar to this one so I decided to try it. I followed the advice of the above reviews with respect to amounts of the vegetables. I didn't have chili peppers so just shook a few drops of Frank's Red Hot Sauce before serving. I sauteed the vegetables in a bit of coconut oil before adding to the Vitamix. The result was a smooth and creamy textured, nutritiously spicy soup.
