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.

This went down a treat with the family. I used a carton of coconut cream as it was in the cupboard and it worked well. I'll make it again and next time I'll chop rather than grate the sweet potato it's less hard work!

Nicest soup ever! I used a yam instead, 3tsp of curry paste and had to add salt!

I have made this loads of times and it's always turned out lovely. I don't bother grating (too much like hard work) so I cut the sweet potato into chunks and leave to cook for longer.

I made this using carrots instead of sweet potatoes (bit of a last-minute dinner emergency), and it was lovely. I had red curry paste, and the amount of heat was perfect. I served it with warm homemade bread, and the whole family enjoyed it. Can't wait to try it with sweet potatoes now!

simple to make, put a swirl of coconut milk in before serving instead of the chopped coriander, perfect with naan bread, will make again

Lovely, tasty soup. Very impressed.
I agree that it has a korma flavour to it.
Will definately make again

Very tasty and simple to make. I chunked rather than grated the sweet potatoes and cooked until tender.

Very good and easy to make. Doesn't spoil that it's really healthy too. I actually put full fat coconut milk (a small can-165 ml) and about 3 teaspoons of curry paste. Fabulous.

A truly glorious soup - with a little more Red Thai curry paste it would even double up as a Korma sauce!
