Thai Coconut, Sweet Potato & Chicken Soup

A hug in a bowl :)


1 tsp olive 

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1 deseeded red chilli - chopped

2cm long piece of ginger - chopped

1 stalk lemongrass - bashed

A handful of pack coriander - chopped

2 tbsp red Thai curry paste

750ml chicken stock 

150 ml coconut cream

500g sweet potato, peeled & roughly chopped

2 to 3 chicken breasts - sliced

A handle of sliced mushrooms

Juice of 1 medium lime

1 tsp sugar

1 and 1/2 tsp fish sauce


1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan then add the garlic, chilli, ginger, lemongrass, coriander and curry paste and cook for a couple of minutes until the aromas are released.

2. Add the chicken stock, coconut cream and sweet potatoes and cook for a further 20 minutes or until the potatoes are soft. Remove the lemongrass and discard it.

3. Pour this mixture into a blender and blend until smooth. Once smooth return it to the saucepan, add the chicken and mushrooms and cook gently for ±15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.

4. Stir through the lime juice, sugar and fish sauce, and taste to see if you'd like to add a bit more lime. I like to serve it with a small dollop of coconut cream on top and a couple of coriander leaves :) Enjoy!
