I tied this recipe after another one, and found it very tasty. Watch for the ginger taste, a 1/4 cup was a bit too strong and came through in the final dish. I would reduce this amount slightly next time. None the less it was most enjoyable. Well done. Thanks Bangers n'Mash.

The soup has an excellent flavour. However, i only sifted parts of the soup through the filter; i didn't want to waste the ingredients. the soup wasn't silky smooth, but myfamily still likes it. I guess it's just a personal preference thing.
