Spicy Curried Sweet Potato Soup

I whipped this up after finding a great deal on a huge amount of sweet potatoes at the farmers' market and ran out of things to make with them. This is a little spicy, but you can adjust to your taste. Garnish with sliced basil leaves and sour cream, if you like.

  • 3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced

  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • 3 medium garlic cloves, peeled

  • 1 (32 ounce) carton chicken stock

  • 1 teaspoon curry paste

  • 1 tablespoon yellow curry powder

  • 1 (14 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chile peppers

  • ½ cup chopped fresh basil

  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger

  • 1 teaspoon salt, or more to taste

  • ½ (14 ounce) can coconut milk


  1. Combine sweet potatoes, onion, and garlic cloves, in a pot. Add chicken stock, curry paste, and curry powder; bring to a low boil over medium heat. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until sweet potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes.

  2. Remove from the heat. Stir in diced tomatoes with chile peppers, basil, ginger, and 1 teaspoon salt. Puree soup with an immersion blender until smooth; you can also use a regular blender or food processor to do this.

  3. Bring soup to a low boil again and stir in coconut milk. Adjust salt if needed.

Cook's Note:

To make this into a meal, add some diced cooked chicken.
