Sweet Potato Soup with Coconut Milk

Making sweet potato soup on the stove

If you have a knife and a blender, you can make this delicious soup. Chef Leslie has made this easy to prepare, easy to cook and easy to digest.

Sweet potatoes are high in beta-carotene and Vitamin A. At your supermarket, these might be labeled “yams.”

Coconut milk is calorie rich, contains healthy fats and is a good source of iron and magnesium. For people who have difficulty digesting cow’s milk, coconut milk is one flavorful alternative.
