We really enjoyed this soup this evening. I wanted a thinner soup so I used less sweet potato, and it turned out perfect. Sweet potato and red curry paste are such a natural combination. Of course, it's just an added bonus that this cooks so quickly. This made three servings for us, with me claiming the third serving for lunch tomorrow.
