This rustic soup recipe is a brilliant blend of sweet potato, coconut and a medley of spices with a zesty kick.
Sweet Potato, Coconut & Coriander Soup
3 tbsp Coconut Oil
1 Onion, peeled and finely chopped
1 clove of Garlic, peeled and crushed
800g Sweet Potato, peeled and diced
1 Pointed Red Pepper, deseeded and sliced

2 tbsp Sweet Chilli Sauce
3 tbsp Chopped Fresh Coriander

Heat 1 tbsp of the coconut oil in a large non stick pan and add the onion and garlic, stirring until the onion just begins to soften.
Add the sweet potato and sliced pepper.
Pour the stock over, stir in the chilli sauce and bring to the boil.

Blend with a hand-held wand blender or in a liquidiser until smooth.
