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.

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. Read More

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. Read More

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.

We love this soup! I've made it twice now and it was perfect each time. I followed the advice of the other reviewers and substituted chicken broth for the water and added some fresh garlic. Delicious! Read More

Don't do anything to this recipe... it's fantastic! We are going to make it at least once every couple weeks! This is not a spicy soup... the ginger does not make it spicy so if that's what you are looking for you will have to add extra spice. Read More
