You can easily substitute any non dairy milk.  Just make sure that you use the unsweetened kind.  Otherwise, your soup may take on the flavoring of the milk.  The thickness of your soup is a matter of preference.  Simply add more vegetable broth or water to thin it out a bit.  If you choose to use ground ginger or turmeric, please remember that the dried is more powerful than fresh.  Start with 1/4 teaspoon and adjust as needed.
