    Too high in sodium - as many have suggested. Sodium reduced soy sauce is still high and regular commercial sodium reduced chicken broth has what I am permitted in 2/3 cup for an entire meal. I think the numbers are right. Recipe is not for people who need to reduce sodium - 12/13/08

    Yes, but next time I would try coconut milk or lf milk in place of the soy milk. The soy left an after taste I didn't enjoy. - 12/13/08

    Great--with UNSWEETENED soy milk, tho that adds 2.5 grams of fat to the entire 8 servings. I've found lots of recipes calling for soy don't do well with the usual stuff, b/c it's got sweeteners in it. Look for unsweetened--great for soups and savory dishes. - 12/13/08

    This sounds awesome, glad to see the nutrition info got fixed. I think I'll up the ginger and garlic and add a bunch of carrots (love carrots) and maybe some turnips or parsnips. Maybe some red pepper flakes, too. Thanks for the recipe! Would you mind if I posted a smaller version for us singles? - 12/13/08

  • since I don't have to worry too much about sodium, it was great! I loved the ginger, even added extra. - 11/16/11

  • Added more vegetables - celery, potatoes (nixed the pasta), red peppers, beans, corn, and garlic. Also, I replaced the soy milk with nonfat milk and replaced the chicken broth with reduced sodium chicken bouillian and water. Threw the whole thing in the crockpot (added milk & corn at end). - 11/8/11

  • I tweaked it a little, which added much more flavor. I used more ginger (med sized root) and also added 5 or 6 celery roots, 5-6 carrots and 2-3 parsnips. I used 3 chicken wings or drumsticks and 3 short ribs. Cooked it for longer. SO MUCH FLAVOR! - 1/8/11

  • I finally got around to making this soup....it's amazing! The amount of ginger is absolutely perfect. I didn't add the soy milk because the broth was great without it, and I added a handful of cilantro the last 10 minutes of simmering and it added a gorgeous color!!! Thanks for sharing. - 12/1/10
