I suppose this doesn’t really count because it isn’t a “traditional” Thai recipe so much as it is a recipe I’ve doctored up with Thai flavors. Either way, any time I can throw together fish sauce and lime juice and cilantro in a recipe, I’m going to be a very happy camper.

This Thai Sweet Potato Soup recipe is super quick and easy, but it tastes like something you simmered on the stove all day long.

I love making soups this time of year because it takes very little energy from the stove (so the house doesn’t heat up) and very little energy from me (so I don’t heat up).

The easiest way to make this sweet potato carrot soup is to use a heavy-duty enameled cast iron Dutch oven.  I love this Dutch Oven from Lodge because it’s so reasonably priced.

It will hold up to any abuse from your immersion blender, I recommend this one if you want to get one.

If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can just use your regular old blender-blender to puree the soup.

Instructions

  • Heat the oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onions and saute for 3 minutes. Add the ginger, garlic, and curry paste, then saute another 2 minutes.
  • Add the diced sweet potatoes, diced carrots, and broth. Cover the pot, reduce the heat to low, and simmer 15 or until the vegetables are tender.
  • Puree the soup with an immersion blender, leaving a few chunks if desired. Alternatively, transfer small portions to a counter-top blender and puree in batches, being careful not to let the steam blow the top off the blender. Return soup to Dutch oven.
  • Stir in the coconut milk, fish sauce, and black pepper.
  • Serve garnished with lime wedges, peanuts, and cilantro.
