If you’re like me, nothing beats a good soup recipe. In the dead of winter, or on a cool summers night, soup is an easy meal that can accompany nearly any dish. It can be simple and plain, exotic and spicy, and everything in between. Time to check out this sweet potato coconut soup recipe of the more exotic variety.


The purpose of this soup recipe is to take the sweetness of sweet potatoes, with the creaminess of coconut, and the spice of ginger, to make a soup that is bold and refreshing. Loaded with antibacterial foods and nutrients, you can’t go wrong with this soup. This soup has ridiculous amounts of Vitamin A, and also a good source of potassium and manganese.
