thai yellow curry sweet potato and carrot soup

sweet potato and carrot thai soup

The weather has turned chilly here and I’ve started to make soup.

I love soup. It is one of those things that tastes like it took way more effort to make than it actually did. It freezes well so you can make a large batch to keep some for later when you can’t be bothered cooking.

I made this creamy thai flavoured sweet potato and carrot soup last week and ate it all promptly for both lunch and dinner, so I made it again the next day. Just a few ingredients and 30 minutes is all it takes. I made it completely velvety by using a high speed blender to puree it, but if don’t have one it will work with a food processor, stick blender or a masher. It will just be a bit more rustic.

I served mine garnished with some coconut yoghurt, coriander and kaffir lime leaves.

Standby for at least a month of my favourite soup recipes! It is definitely the weather for it.
