      Quick, easy, tasty, healthy- what more could you want? I made it with lite coconut milk.

      I used this for Thanksgiving leftovers with lots of substitutions:
      1 Chicken stock, not veg stock,
      2 Powdered spices, not fresh,
      3 Leftover sour cream, not coconut milk,
      4 Canned sweet potatoes, not fresh.

      Results: its still good. Not as good as using fresh ingredients, which I've also done, but still quite good.
      The big difference versus most American soups and chowders is using ginger/chile/cilantro vs. celery/onion/garlic. Also, there's no salt at all and you don't need it any.

      This is an excellent recipe, though I made a few minor changes. 1) I used dried chili flakes (~1 tbls) rather then the chillies. 2) I used Chicken Stock rather then veg. 3) about a tablespoon of dried coriander instead of the fresh. The soup was excellent, though I had expected it to be a touch thicker then it was due the the last time I had a sweet potato soup.
