Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons chopped peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon red Thai curry paste
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed (about 2 1/2 pounds)
  • Two 32-ounce containers reduced-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • Grated zest and juice of 1 lime

Directions

Heat the oil in a large nonstick saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the ginger, red curry paste, scallions and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the potatoes, broth, brown sugar and nutmeg and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are fork-tender, about 20 minutes.

Transfer the soup, in batches, to a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Return the soup to the saucepan. Stir in the coconut milk and lime zest and juice and heat through. Serve at once.
