Tip
Use an immersion blender to easily puree this soup right in the slow cooker. It’s a handheld, wand-shaped blender with a rotary blade at one end that you can put right into the soup.
Gingerroot, has a very different flavor than ground ginger, and they’re not interchangeable. To prepare the gingerroot for this recipe, simply cut away the thin skin, then grate.
