Method

  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.

Absolutely delicious. I chunked the sweet potato which worked fine as I blended it. Added a bit more paste to give a bit more of a kick. I also made the flat breads which turned out well. Definitely one to make again.

Great soup, it will be one that I will make again and again. I added more curry paste to make it abit more spicy.

Gorgeous soup. Easy to make and lovely to eat as well. I added more red thai curry paste than the recipe suggested but then I like food quite spicy. I've also tried it with parsnips instead of seet potato and green curry paste, lovely!!!

Delicious! Also didn't grate, but cooked chunks for 10' instead - worked fine. Will definitely make this again.

Lovely Soup! really easy to make and everyone loved it. I even won the vote for best dish at our monthly pot-luck supper with it! My aunt made it with carrot and that was also very nice. The Tai Pesto makes a very good addition to it.

hmmm..... Just realised that the one I'm talking about is very slightly different to this one as it didn't call for the sweet potato to be grated just chopped, maybe that's what makes this one 'speedy' mine was in a recent edition of the magazine with a tai pesto......

I diced the potatoes, they cooked quickly. I thought it tasted delicious. My 4 year old daughter initially refused to taste this but when she did she said it was lovely and demanded a bowl of her own!

Really lovely soup, great flavour and you could make this as hot or mild as you like. Served five rather than four and it really fills you up. Great standby dish that you can knock together with no fuss at all.

Fantastic soup, used some fresh ginger. Chopped the sweet potato, no need to grate. The texture is lovely and soup very warming. Will be making again and again.

Really tasty soup and so quick - I did not bother grating the sweet potato I just chopped into small chunks and only took a few mins longer. I served with flatbreads and was lovely.

Really tasty recipe, I added a little thai fish sauce and some cooked noodles tomake it more like a main meal, would also consider adding some cooked prawns next time.

Fab soup. Don't bother grating, just cook chunks longer. I used a fair bit of green curry paste - very nice.

Also made the flatbreads to go with which I was a bit dubous about, but actually turns out rather well.

For a finer consistency i sieved after blending. Glorious!
