I love ginger root. Recently my daughter made us up a big batch of veg juice with ginger root in it. A few lumps to chew on but it seemed to chase away a cold. Hardly get sick anymore...I mean not acutely sick like flu etc.

I suppose a person could improvise a lot in making wonderful meals with ginger.
Ginger  just needs to be peeled and grated, cooked until tender - perhaps ten minutes or more.  Cook it
along with other ingredients you have on hand to make soup.

With noodles and cilantro  this is a big hit at a restaurant in L.A.

RE making your own ginger soup:
This recipe below seems sort of gourmet ...a little difficult to make. It does look good and those
ingredients are

Chicken Ginger Soup
CDKitchen http://www.cdkitchen.com
Serves/Makes: 3    |   Difficulty Level: 3    |   Ready In: 30-60 minutes

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 carrot -- thinly sliced
1/2 small onion -- sliced
2 large mushrooms -- sliced
1 large jalapeno pepper -- seeded and finely diced
1 tablespoon butter
2 chicken breasts, no skin, no bone
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 quart low-sodium chicken broth
4 medium red potatoes -- peeled and cut into large dice
1 teaspoon mild curry powder
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
2 teaspoons tamari soy sauce
2 teaspoons lemon juice

Directions:
Prepare vegetables and cut chicken into 1-inch cubes; set aside.

Heat 3 to 3-1/2 quart sauce pan for 1 minute, add olive oil and heat for 30 seconds. Stir in sliced carrot, onion, mushrooms and jalapeno pepper. Saute about 2 minutes, or until onion is slightly softened. Stir in butter.

When melted, add chicken and saute over medium-high heat about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with flour and continue to saute until flour is slightly browned.

Reduce heat to medium and gradually add chicken broth, stirring constantly so it doesn't get lumpy. After all the broth is added, turn up heat to bring it to a boil. Add potatoes, bring to a boil again, then reduce heat to a simmer.

Stir in curry powder, fresh ginger, tamari or soy sauce and lemon juice. Continue cooking until potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning according to taste.

It's one of those foods which keeps comparatively well.
Cabbage, potatoes, radishes, onions, carrots, ginger etc.
