    Karen Elizabeth's Note:

    This simple recipe uses the sweet potato with its distinctive flavour and colour as the base for a delicious soup with a hint of orange and coriander. Taken from "What's Cooking : Potatoes" The recipe calls for the soup to be pureed, and the addition of yoghurt. I don't do this as we prefer chunky soups, so in fact, I stop at the end of Step 4! I squeezed fresh oranges for the orange juice.

      This soup is to die for !! DS said it was a 'cracker' soup - high praise indeed !! I altered not one thing when making this but offered sweet chili sauce swirled on top to the eaters. It is such a beautiful colour and makes a generous amount - thanks KE so much for this fabulous meal.

      Delicious hearty vegetarian soup! I blended in the blender which it very silky and smooth. I did not use the fresh coriander as I don't care for it. Made for "Veg*n Swap 17 ~ Dec 2009 ~ Let's Play!
