Curried Sweet Potato Soup plus Tasty Tuesdays Link Up

While flipping through the original May I Have a Copy of That Recipe cookbook that was the precursor to this website, I came across a recipe for Curried Sweet Potato Soup that I knew wasn’t on the blog yet. Mostly because I know Ma’am never made. She put it in as a joke for a friend that does not care for coconut.

I also knew I had two yams in the cupboard which are almost the same thing as sweet potatoes, at least as far as this recipe is concerned.

I lightened up the original recipe with some coconut milk instead of half and half and a tweak here and there to match the ingredients I had on hand and I ended up with an awesome vegan meal.

This soup is very quick and easy, coming together in under 30 minutes. Serve it with a salad and bread and you have a great weeknight dinner.

Boil the sweet potatoes (yams), until soft.
