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.

Absolutely delicious soup! I used a red curry coriander paste and combined with the sweet potatoes and coconut milk, this soup was perfect. I served the soup along with a savory Corn and Zucchini Muffin. Great ending to a wonderful day! Made for the AUS/NZ recipe tag.

This is so delicious!! I added a little fish sauce at serving time. I've also made big batches and frozen it - it reheats perfectly for lunches, etc.
