This incredibly tasty soup has just three ingredients – but packs an outstanding flavour punch. Here’s how to make it:
Choose a good 700-800gms sweet potato, and simply start warming the coconut milk and chilli paste 5-10 mins before the potato is baked.
The soup is filling, warming and ideal for the cooler winter months. The recipe came from Chef Maria Elia, when challenged on TV to make a dish using just three ingredients. She stole the show with her tasty, simple soup, as you will at your next dinner party!
