sweet potato soup with coconut

Standard

I used to make other soup with sweet potatoes that goes with chilli, but this one is quite similar, so I decided to give a try, especially because it is with coconut cream.

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • onion , chopped
  • 1-2 tsp Thai curry paste , red or green
  • 1l vegetable stock
  • half sachet creamed coconut (or ¼ can reduced-fat coconut milk)
  • handful coriander , roughly chopped
  • mini naan bread , to serve
  • 750g sweet potatoes , cut into chunks
  1. Heat the oil in a deep saucepan, then soften the onion for 4-5 mins. Stir in the curry paste and cook for 1 min more until fragrant. Add the grated sweet potato and stock, then bring quickly to the boil, simmering for 5 mins until the potato is tender.
  2. Remove the soup from the heat, stir in the coconut and seasoning, then cool briefly before whizzing with a stick blender until smooth. Sprinkle with coriander and serve with warm naan breads.

I did not use naan breads, but nonetheless it came out great.
