minced fresh ginger root

This was a big hit. I added snap peas and substituted the water for chicken broth.
Average, does not worth the effort
this was a quick and easy soup, soooo yummy! i alterd it a bit using chicken stock, added snow peas, water chestnuts, and a dash of cayenne pepper and served with jasmine rice. definitely a winner...
Wonderful soup. I was amazing at the amount flavor, but not at all overpowering. My family and I loved it!!! Even my mother, whose isn't a big fan of fresh ginger. I served it with eggrolls and a simple vegitable stirfry. I will most certainly make this soup again.
This "Thai Ginger Soup" is my new "go to" recipe for cold and flu season: it has coconut milk (with the immune-system boosting properties of medium-chain triglycerides); lime juice (rich in vitamin C for fighting infections); and loads of ginger (a traditional medicine). On top of that, it tastes great! I made mine with homemade chicken stock instead of water, and the combination of coconut milk, chicken stock, and ginger tasted excellent on its own without further embellishment, although I did especially like the green-onion garnish on top. It is something to keep in mind if you live in a rural community (like I did while growing up) without access to ingredients like fish sauce, fresh lime juice, and cilantro. Thank you TORIHAWK for sharing your recipe.
Excellent recipe after 'tweaking' a bit - instead of water, I used Asian soy ginger broth which I believe added a needed kick, and low fat coconut milk. This is not a spicy Thai soup, but still is very flavorful and super easy. Will definitely make again.
I am on a soup kick - my guy really liked this one - he swears he feels like a teen-ager the next day after eating something with ginger in it. Whatever!??! This was super easy to make and just tastes better and better as it gets oldler. Will keep this one. Didn't change anything. Thanks submitter.
Very good. I served it over rice with brocolli. My husband loved it.
