    Daydream's Note:

    This spicy, tasty soup is something a bit different and easy to assemble. The bright orange-fleshed sweet potato is not only attractive to the eye, but tastes beautiful. We loved it when my brother served it and begged the recipe from him. For best results, use Thai-style sweet chili sauce.

      This was nice, easy to make with ingredients we had on hand. I did add a good splash of lime juice. All the family enjoyed this served with some crusty bread for dipping into their soup.

      This was a lovely soup. I would definitely make it again. I should say, however, that I probably would've given it 4 stars if I hadn't done the following: added 2" of gingerroot and tripled the garlic. A Thai soup welcomes ginger, and I felt the ginger/extra garlic was necessary to pull the flavor up and away from the heavy peanut element of this soup. Also, I didn't have chili sauce to hand and used Thai Red Curry Paste instead. Lovely recipe! Thanks for posting it!
