Meatless Monday: Spicy Thai Sweet Potato-Ginger Soup

sweet potato soup

Isn’t soup the best? It warms you up when it’s freezing outside, it’s easy to make, it’s a great way to clean out the fridge (you really can throw any old vegetables sitting in the crisper into your current soup of the day) and you can make a big batch at the beginning of the week and eat it for lunch or dinner (or breakfast if you’re into that) for days. Some soups — those spiced with cumin or ginger especially — taste even better after a few days. Bobby Deen’s Thai Sweet Potato Soup is one such soup. Make a pot tonight and enjoy a steaming bowl when it’s done, then pack some for lunch tomorrow. After the flavors of the curry paste, ginger and garlic have a chance to meld overnight, your soup will taste even more amazing tomorrow — so much so that you might want it for dinner again.

To glam up this Thai soup even more, top it with pan-fried tofu, toasted cashews and coconut, chopped cilantro or a fried egg.

Spicy Thai Sweet Potato-Ginger Soup
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 (use vegetable to make it truly meatless)
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

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.
