A family favorite that might of come from another family member???Seasonings can be adjusted to suit your taste. I like to let it set for a day before re-heating and serving.Cooling time not included...if you're in a rush and have a hand blender you don't have to cool. This can look special with a swirl of cream on top for those unexpected guests.

This is a super easy, very tasty recipe. My husband and I had multiple helpings after making it. The only changes I made were using vegetable broth instead of chicken (just to keep it vegetarian) and adding a dollop of plain yogurt to to each bowl of soup just before eating. I will definitely be making this one again.

Just like the chef said - an easy soup to prepare! I used two small sweet potatoes and some frozen pumpkin I had to use up. I put some of the cooked diced potato aside and after the soup was blended I added it to the pot, it made the soup a bit chunky, which I like. The curry flavour was quite mild, I prefer fresh ginger so used 2 teaspoons, grated; it gave the soup quite a bite!! I tossed a sprig of fresh thyme into the pot and removed it before serving so there was just a hint of thyme flavour. I like this recipe as a good soup base, lots of possibilities with this one!
