Coconut and Sweet Potato Soup



Sometimes strange flavours go together magnificently well. Maybe strange is not the right word, but flavours that wouldn't be quick to your mind as pairings can be quite delicious indeed. 


This soup has become one of my favourite comfort soups. When the coconut and sweet potato come together, it becomes a buttery soup. It's hard to explain the loveliness of the flavour, so really you must taste it and find out for yourself! 

I have added Thermomix instructions, so my customers and readers who are owners can add this recipe to their Cookidoo. From now on, I will add this to any new recipes that I write down over here on the blog.
