Serves 4


  • 3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks;
  • 4 cups chicken stock;
  • 3 thin slices fresh ginger;
  • 2 lime leaves;
  • ¾ cup coconut milk;
  • ½ cup water;
  • 2 tbsp lime juice;
  • 2 tbsp cilantro, finely chopped;
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste;


  1. In a large sauce pan over a medium-high heat, combine the sweet potatoes, chicken stock, ginger and lime leaves. Allow the contents to come o a boil and then turn the heat down to medium-low and continue to simmer for about 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender to the touch.
  2. Remove the lime leaves and maybe even the ginger if you prefer. I kept the ginger in, as I love the taste; however, if you are not a huge fan, you will find that leaving it in makes it very strong.
  3. Remove the soup from the heat and use a hand-mixer or a blender to blend the soup until completely smooth. Return the soup to a low heat and mix in the coconut milk, water and lime juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir well. You will know everything is mixed correctly once the coconut milk is completely blended in.
  4. You can remove the pot from the heat at this point and sprinkle the chopped cilantro on top prior to serving. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did!
