Thai Curry Sweet Potato Soup

Pureed sweet potatoes with ginger, lime, coconut milk and curry paste create a silky-smooth, perfectly balanced bowl of soup that is truly swoon-worthy.

Thai Curry Sweet Potato Soup

It happens every few months (weeks) where all I want to eat is soup. Huge, piping hot bowls filled with veggies, beans, meat, uber-flavorful stock, spices and herbs. There’s just… nothing better on a chilly fall day. Or in the middle of summer. I don’t judge.

But in this case, it’s the chilly fall option, and I’m okay with it. I love fall food, but I also just love fall things. Campfires (outdoor or indoor), the smell of leaves burning next door, apple and pumpkin picking, flannel shirts, slippers.

Thai Curry Sweet Potato Soup

Today’s variety is kinda unique, and I absolutely adore it. It’s pureed sweet potatoes, ginger, lime, coconut milk and curry paste with just a hint of spice. The flavors are perfectly balanced, and it’s just so very smooth. The silkiness alone is reason to eat bowl after bowl of this soup. And it certainly doesn’t hurt to be a beautiful soup, either. Swoon.
