I just finished making this soup. I must say it is amazing. I had to make some substitutions due to accident/lack of vegetable knowledge but it still came out amazing! I bought a couple "CA" sweet potatoes (that is all the store had) but was not agreeing with the white color of the potato and found what I think may have been Yams...but they could have also been orange colored sweet potatoes (see...lack of vegetable knowledge). I had to improvise with the curry paste and added butter to the oil I simmered the onions and curry powder in. I also added extra ginger. I used Malibu coconut rum and since my batch was a little larger I used 4 tbs of it. Also, since we are quickly approaching "Turkey Season" I chopped up the remainder of a leftover turkey breast from the other night and that added a nice light smokey flavor. When it was all over with I added about 1.5 tbs of sugar to kick it up a little bit. I unfortunately did not have plain/sweet paprika so I used smoked paprika which I had used in prior soups. Overall... A very good soup and will definitely help to liven up our turkey day(s) leftovers!

I just made this for the first time for my work pals and the crock pot was practically licked clean! Changes I made? I tripled the fresh garlic, added half again more curry paste, and on a whim added a head of heavily roasted, soft and buttery of garlic. I mushed it up with a fork and stirred it in and it added a little texture to the soup. VERY good. I'll definitely be making this again, and sharing it with the lovely folks I work with.

The first time I made this I substituted several ingredients and thought it was a little bland. This time I followed the directions exactly (except I used Thai Kitchen Green Curry Paste), and it was fantastic. I'm only sorry I didn't double the recipe.

Lovely and easy soup. I'm always nervous about adding alcohol and how intense it will taste, but I dared and was glad I did. The rum brings all the flavors together nicely and adds that little extra oomph. Might just make it again tonight....

GREAT! I changed it up a tad to suit my taste. We are a spicy family, so I doubled the curry and put a few tablespoons of crush red pepper. Plus, it needs a bit of salt. I used Patak's HOT curry. Excellent.

Yum Yum yet used no rum! This soup is delicious! I used Thai red curry paste as this is what I had. We don't drink rum, so I had none in the house. We enjoyed the fiery sweetness all the same. My husband had 3 servings, and said 'It's a keeper!' Thank you for this sweet and spicy soup.

It is very YUMMY. It has a sweet-salty flavor. I didn't have curry paste, so I replaced it by one teaspoon of curry powder. I replace the red pepper by the green one, and since I didn't have rum, but I wanted to have more sweet flavor, I added one teaspoon of sugar. But with the rum, it must be better. Thanks for this delicioso recipe
