WAAAAAY too much ginger. Maybe this should be 1/2 a finger of fresh ginger instead of half a cup. It is a very spicy, strong root. This sounds way over the reasonable limit. I make a 12 cup chai tea that only calls for a 1 inch slice, peeled and chopped.

After all that preparation I thought this was going to be so good, sounds good... problem was that the flavor was strong and was basically garlic and ginger noodles. A pund of noodles- I should've known better- I didn't have a bowl big enough to toss all the ingredients- so that made a mess. It's now the day after and I can still taste it!!! I ate a bowl full- there is so much left it could feed 6 people. Thanks for the experience, though, I will not being trying this one out again.
