Recipe by Vegetarian Hostess
On a cold wintery day this is a superb soup to warm up your bones with ginger and cinnamon undertones. The original recipe for this soup was made famous by the Jerusalem Ramada Renaissance Hotel, however I added more depth to this so that it would be more suitable for a cold winter climate.

- 1 inch fresh ginger, grated
