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
- 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!
