I love lentils so ideal for me. I find soups a bit hit and miss as most aren’t as flavoursome as my palate needs but can’t wait to try this one!

Sweet Potato Soup

2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut to 1″ pieces
1 small onion, chopped
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped
1-2 teaspoons hot curry powder
2 cups chicken or vegetable stock
1 cup coconut milk
2 tablespoons butter
salt and pepper to taste

In a heavy pot, cook the onions with the butter on low for about 5 minutes, stirring. Add the chopped rosemary, a pinch each of salt and pepper and continue on low to cook another 5-6 minutes. Reduce heat if onions begin to brown. Add the sweet potatoes and stock, and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for about 30 minutes.

Use a hand food processor to blend soup into a creamy, almost-smooth. Or, transfer to a food processor and blend in batches. Return to low heat, and add a bit of the curry powder, some salt and a little pepper. Taste for seasoning, and add more curry and/or salt according to taste. Add the milk and stir until completely heated through. Garnish with optional fresh herbs (such as parsley) and serve.

Let me know if you like it ........ :eat: :eat: :eat:
