Sweet Potato Soup with Coconut Milk

This soup has become a favorite in our home as the temperature becomes cooler and we approach Thanksgiving. My kids love to eat sweet potatoes and this recipe gives us an opportunity to eat them in a form other than baked, casseroled, or in a pie.

Recipes Notes:

This soup is a little thicker than your normal soup; I would almost consider it more of a bisque than a soup. But you can also add in more vegetable/chicken stock to make it thinner.

Health Benefits:

Keep in mind also the health benefits of sweet potatoes. They are an excellent source of Vitamins A and C.
