Calling all vegetarians! This is by-far one of our most popular soups during the year. Our Asian Ginger Broth is a great, light soup that can be created to your likings with all the veggie toppings and any add-ons you want to include.

We offer sliced green onions, shredded carrots, chopped spinach, sliced mushrooms, wonton Strips and cubed tofu at our soup bar to mix in with the broth. Tell us what your favorite combination is.

14 cups water

6 Tablespoons Vegetarian base

(* Vegetarian base – we use Custom brand vegetarian base powder. Substitute with a similar base.)

Hi, this soup made me go to Sweet Tomatoes for lunch every single day. In fact today which is Saturday and the last day will go there to enjoy this soup. Years ago, I was introduced to this soup in Atlanta in a Thai restaurant which had the same effect on me, it made me go for lunch and/or dinner every single day while been there for a class.

Hi Elle – the base we use contains milk and is therefore not vegan. Hope this helps.

How much broth does this recipe make?

Recipe calls for a total of 16 cups of water. (2 cups + 14 cups)

4 cups = 1 quart
4 quarts = 1 gallon
Therefore, the above recipe would make 1 gallon of soup.

Why not make the asian broth soup vegan? This would give other options for vegans besides the salad, few soups in Souplantation are vegan. Making a small change ,just by deleting the milk powder, would be greatly appreciate by your vegan customers . The milk probably does not add much to the flavor of the broth, but deleting it would add more happy customers to Souplantation.
