Crock Pot Sweet Potato Coconut Soup 

This is my absolute favorite soup !! it is super good for you and tastes like pure indulgence !

I am a huge fan of curries so I tend to use a bit more spice then others may, So if your new to these spices start with 1 teaspoon of each and add more the next time until you find your perfect measurements.

Now if you love heat like I do add the fresh chillies to the pot and let them cook all day but if only some of the family likes chili then serve it chopped as a garnish with the coriander  x

Ingredients

1 tbsp coconut oil

1 -2 tsp raw chopped ginger

1-2  tsp cumin

4 cups of veggie or chicken stock

 good pinch of salt and pepper

chopped frech red chillies (optional)

1 can coconut milk or cream

Directions

    1. My only comment re the recipe would be that, here, kumara come in such a range of sizes, it would be good if the recipe indicated perhaps a weight ..? Our ones are massive (over a kg each) and, although I used the eye-o-meter to gauge the quantity in relation to the amount of liquid, I probably was still a bit under with the kumara and the result was more liquid… still tasted great though!!
