Ginger Soup



    • 2 qt homemade chicken broth
    • 2 qt water
    • 6 inch piece of ginger chopped
    • 2 teaspoons Chinese five spice
    • 1 cup chopped onion
    • 3 cups of assorted vegetables ( carrots, turnips, sun chokes, potatoes)
    • 1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey
    • 1 tablespoons  fish sauce

    In a large soup pot combine chicken broth, water, chopped ginger, and Chinese five spice. Bring to a simmer. Let simmer for 2-3 hours to get the full strength of the ginger. Strain out the ginget and place back on the stove. Return to a simmer and add the vegetables. Simmer for 45-50 minutes or until the vegetables are soft.  Season with syrup and fish sauce and serve.
