      I wish I could give this 10 stars .. Susie, this is my top 2009 recipe, its amazing. I made it at the weekend, I baked the sweet potatoes on the Saturday, and then the tomatoes earlier in the day on the Sunday. Sunday evening it was childs play to put together the rest of the soup, just as you describe. At Step 11, I didn't add the coconut milk, I let the soup cook for maybe half an hour, pureed the soup, then warmed it again in a clean pot, and at this point I added the coconut milk, allowing it to warm though. The soup was good and thick, and the coconut milk thinned it a little, while still leaving it satisfyingly hearty. The flavours and aromas of this soup are heady and overwhelming, we are all in love with it, including the girls. I had been concerned it might be too spicy for them, (it is spicy), but they really enjoyed it. We enjoyed olive bread with this. Susie, Fabulous recipe for family and friends alike, simply the best! :) Made for Aus/NZ Swap#32

      Delicious. When in a hurry, I just boil the sweet potatoes in the chicken broth, mash them with a potato masher and use canned tomatoes. I leave out the coconut milk as I do not like coconut. I also use crunchy peanut butter. I dice the onions. Between the hand mashed potatoes, the crunchy peanut butter and diced onions, the soup has a nice texture which my family prefers over a totally smooth soup. Adjust the cayenne to taste.

      I love this soup! Like some of the other reviewers, I use an immersion blender to puree it right in the pot. I usually amp up the spice level, since the recipe is fairly tame for my tastes. I also sometimes add some turmeric, which gives it a lovely orange color. I top it with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkling of crushed peanuts.
