Curried sweet potato soup

It’s potluck week at I heart cooking clubs. We already had some warm spring days but winter is back now and it’s cold outside, and sometimes snow is falling. Hugh says about this

This is a warming soup for a cold evening, the heat of the spices softened by the sweetness of the coconut milk and lime.

The right soup for the last days in April. It is really tasty and makes 5 servings. One serving I eat immediately the other 4 servings I preserved in jars for lunch at work.

  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan over a medium-low heat. Add the onions and saute for about 10 minutes, until soft and translucent. Add the garlic, ginger, chillies, garam masala and curry powder, and stir for a minute.
    Tip in the sweet potatoes and stir until they’re well coated in the spices. Add some salt and pepper and pour in the stock. Increase the heat and bring to a simmer. Cook gently until the sweet potatoes are very tender – about 15 minutes.
  2. Remove the soup from the heat, cool slightly and then puree in a blender or food processor, or with a stick blender, until very smooth. Return to the pan, stir in the coconut milk and warm through gently.
    Take off the heat and add the coriander and lime juice. Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary. Serve the curried sweet potato soup topped with a good dollop of yoghurt, if you like, and scatter over some torn coriander. Finish with a little black pepper.
  3. For a longer shelf life fill the soup in Weck©-jars, close with rubber rings, lid and climp and can at 100 °C for 90 minutes.
