Thai Sweet Potato and Coconut Soup

As promised, I written up the recipe for the Thai sweet potato and coconut soup so that I can share it with you guys 🙂

It’s seriously delicious.

It’s got lots of lovely vitamins, minerals and healthy fats in it 🙂

And with its sweet, gently spiced, warming flavour and beautiful colour, it’s got be the perfect soup for the new season 🙂

The ginger, chilli and lemon grass give this soup its distinct Thai flavour, but I’ve kept it mild enough for children. Feel free to crank up the heat if you wish by adding more curry paste or red chilli.

I make my own Thai curry pastes as I prefer the flavour of home-made pastes (plus it allows me to make the paste mild enough for Lil’ L) but you’re welcome to use your favourite shop-bought paste instead.

Here’s how I make it…


Have a great weekend everyone 🙂 xx

  1. Oh my goodness, this sounds wonderful! The photos are gorgeous and are making me hungry at 11:30 pm! I love the idea of making my own curry paste and it will be such a time saver to have some on hand in the freezer. Thank you!

    1. Thanks Candy!
      I always make my own Thai curry paste as I never get through a shop-bought jar before the expiry date and I hate throwing food away. Plus it just doesn’t taste as nice as the home made paste. Freezing it works a treat too!

  2. Again that is just beautiful…the color is so stunning. However I want to add a comment about your chocolate smoothie from WIAW. I must confess I have had it 3 times in 3 days (I think I’m addicted). Seriously it is just the most delicious thing. It has just enough chocolate flavor, but not overly sweet that you get sick of drinking it. I am going to feature it on my WIAW post this week with a link back, I hope you don’t mind. I also hope that you are enjoying your time and that the weather is still beautiful. Have a great day Sharon!

    1. I am SO happy to hear that you like the chocolate smoothie!!! Thank you so much for letting me know. I’ve been grinning ever since reading your comment 🙂 You are more than welcome to feature it on WIAW and use the photo if you wish. Have a great week Rachel x

  3. I just made some of this soup and I’m about to eat it for dinner – just thought I’d say thank you for the recipe. It is delicious! Mine turned out to be very spicy though – probably because I put too much curry paste and extra chilli (for some reason… I thought I could handle it!) I think I will stir through some yoghurt 🙂 x

    1. I always love to hear feedback about my recipes, so thank you so much for taking the time to post me a comment. I really appreciate it 🙂 Really glad you liked the soup. Spicing up soups is my new tactic for keeping warm this season. It’s far cheaper than putting the heating on (which I’m still refusing to do 😉 ) I bet you were super hot after adding that extra chilli in!
