    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 can be served chilled, if preferred. If chilling it, stir the yoghurt into the soup just before serving, and serve in chilled bowls.

      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!
