Hearty Soup

I love all things Autumn (did I mention that yet? 😋)…

And one thing I especially love about Autumn is cooking. Sundays are usually a roast dinner affair – homemade bread sauce, Yorkshires I make from scratch, all the trimmings… anyway. Sadly, work lunches don’t allow for so much delicious food, but I love a good staple soup and one of my all time favourites is the Sweet Potato Curry soup.

Firstly – I’m a wimp when it comes to spice – its a running joke that I find even ketchup spicy, but that’s the perfect thing about this soup – it’s a handful of ingredients, and you can make it as spicy or as mild as you like.

You’re going to need:-

  • 1kg sweet potatoes
  • 1 tin of coconut milk
  • Red Thai Curry Paste
  • Onions
  • Stock
  • Olive oil

Using a deep pan, fry your onions in the oil. Add the curry paste – I only add two tablespoons which doesn’t make it spicy at all but just adds a nice extra bit of flavour – up this amount if you like your spice, though!

Meanwhile, chop up your sweet potatoes and add to the pan with stock and bring to the boil. Throw in half a can of your coconut milk (also, shake the coconut tin. I did not, and it was a disaster.)

Once the sweet potatoes are soft, remove from the heat and then use a hand blender.

Grab a loaf of bread from the local bakery, slather in butter and dip to your hearts content. Delicious!

    I am SUCH a wimp when it comes to spice too, it’s ridiculous! This recipe looks so simple but delicious, the best combination! All of these ingredients are things that I have in my cupboard already so I’ll have to cook up a batch of this later in the week! I had a chuckle thinking about what possibly went wrong with you not shaking that coconut tin haha!

    I love a good soup this time of year. Never tried this flavour though. Good healthy and hearty recipe though, I’m gonna add it to my book of recipes to try!

    Oooh, this looks absolutely delicious! I love soup at this time of year, especially Alan’s homemade chicken soup. I can imagine what happened with your coconut milk, I had a similar experience once before – but never again, haha. And your cover photo is stunning. What a lovely recipe, thank you so much for sharing 🙂 xx
