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

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
