Vindaloo Sweet Potato Coconut Soup

Vindaloo Sweet Potato Coconut Soup

1 1/2 lbs sweet potatoes (approximately 3 large)
1 TBSP vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
1 (2 inch) piece fresh ginger root, thinly sliced
1 TBSP C&C Vindaloo Curry Powder
1 can coconut milk
3 cups vegetable broth
3 1/2 TBSP lemon juice
1 tsp sea salt
1 TBSP toasted sesame oil
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the sweet potatoes directly on the rack and bake until tender enough to easily pierce with a fork, about 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

Heat the oil in a large saucepan or soup pot over medium heat. Add the onion and ginger; cook and stir until tender, about 5 minutes.Stir in C&C Vindaloo Curry Powder and heat for 1 minute, then whisk in the coconut milk and vegetable broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for about 5 minutes.

Remove the skins from the sweet potatoes and cut into bite size chunks. Add to the soup and cook for 5 more minutes so they can soak up the flavor. Stir in lemon juice and season with salt. Ladle into bowls and garnish with a drizzle of sesame oil and a little bit of cilantro.
