*Light coconut milk is a low-fat alternative. You may also substitute for unsweetened, unflavored soy or nut milk, cow’s milk (for non-vegan), or you may dilute regular coconut milk with water (i.e. 2/3 cup coconut milk + 1/3 cup water for a recipe that calls for 1 cup)


  1. After your vegetables have been prepped, in a large stovetop pot heat the olive oil on high heat.
  2. Then, once the oil is hot, sauté the onion and garlic for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Next, add the curry paste, seasonings and vegetable bouillon. Stir together for another 3 minutes, reducing the heat to medium-high.
  4. Add the sweet potato and stir in for 1-2 more minutes.
  5. Then, add the coconut milk and lime juice.
  6. Bring the mixture to a low boil and then reduce heat to low.
  7. Cover the pot with a lid and simmer for 10-20 minutes or until sweet potato is soft.
  8. Once the sweet potatoes have softened, blend your soup by transferring it to a blender in batches or using an immersion blender.
  9. Serve the soup after it has been blended.
