Author Notes: I crave spicy Asian inspired soups when I'm sick. This is a delicious, rich, hearty, comforting and healing concoction of fresh and mostly raw veggies with a spicy tamari and sake broth. It's like a hug.

Oh yummy! You will love it. Let me know how it goes. For ginger juice, I use a microplane and grate it into a piece of cheese cloth in a bowl. Then when I get a decent amount, I squeeze the ginger though the cheese cloth into the bowl and get juice. Alternatively, you can mince it or just grate it:)
