This was a big hit. I added snap peas and substituted the water for chicken broth.

This soup was easy to make and just OK. My husband and I agree it doesn't rate a 4-5 star rating. Something seems to be missing even though using other rater's suggestions I used chicken broth instead of water, added water chestnuts and snow peas. Wouldn't go out of my way to make this again.

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.

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.

This is something I would make again. I think it would compliment any Asian dinner. I subbed chicken broth for the water, but I think it may have taken away from some of the coconut flavor. I also left out the fish sauce as I don't like fish sauce. Next time I will also dice the chicken because long strips were hard to eat in a soup. Other than that I think the recipe is great.

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.
