    I used chicken stock instead of water, and omitted the ginger. I also added cooked egg noodles into the hot soup just before serving.
    It was very good-I would make it again.

    This soup is so easy to make, so fast and so delicious I made myself some when I had a cold. The wait is not even noticeable. Yummy!

    I used radishes and leftout the ginger.
    Delicious soup. I will add some rice and extra water to compensate for the rice next time.

    Sometimes simple and easy is the best as was in this case with this wonderful recipe. I made it tonight for dinner and it was delicious. I did, however, leave out the ginger and felt that next time I make it, yes there will be a next time, I will add 6 cups of liquid instead of 4. I added more stock to my leftovers because there just wasn’t enough liquid. The flavor and simplicity of making this soup was just really perfect.

    Great recipe, i made it with turkey instead of chicken, used turkey soup stock instead of water and I doubled the quantities to make a larger batch. I found doubling everything worked well except the pepper…coyld have cut that back a bit. Also I used a cup and a half of rice instead of the turnip. Had to add water after cooking was done as i think the rice absorbed some. Turned out great though. Will follow this recipe again for turkey or chicken soup!

    My first time using my instapot, so i didnt realize tgat it was going to take and extra 20 min to pre-heat and 40 minutes to de-pressurize.
    I added the rice like suggested and i found it turned it into stew almost… the rice was mushy and didnt evn look like rice.
    Also found it lacking in flavour. I wouldnt make it again
