This is a beautiful creamy, slightly sweet, warming soup which is really easy to make in less than 30 minutes.
Step 1: Ingredients
2 cloves of Garlic
1 Onion sliced
2 pinches of Chilli Flakes
2 pinches of Ground Ginger
400g of Sweet Potato
400ml of chicken or vegetable stock
200g Creamed Coconut
50g Fresh Coriander leaves chopped (optional)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Coriander or Spinach to garnish
Step 2: Heat Oil
Step 3: Add Spices and Sweet Potato
Then add the peeled and chopped sweet potato cooking for a further 2-3 minutes.
Step 4: Add the Stock and Coconut
Take care when adding hot liquid to a hot pan.
At this stage if you wish to add the optional chopped coriander leaves then do so.
Step 5: Remove from Heat
Beware of adding hot liquids to a blender. Hot liquids can scald!
Blend until a smooth and even consistency.
You might find that you need to add a little warm water to thin but this is entirely up to you.
Step 6: Get ready to enjoy.....
If you are going to freeze the soup then it is essential to let the soup reach room temperature before putting it in suitable containers and freezing.
Season to taste and garnish with Coriander (or anything green), serve with home made crusty bread. Its really delightful.
