A trio of coconut—coconut oil, coconut milk and toasted coconut flakes—makes its way into this fragrant and lovely twist on a classic Thanksgiving soup from cookbook author Melissa Clark. Slideshow: More Sweet Potato Recipes

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large saucepan, heat the coconut oil. Add the onions and peppers and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until tender, 10 minutes. Add the curry paste and cook, stirring, about 2 minutes. Add the ginger and garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the sweet potatoes and 2 quarts of water and bring to a simmer. Cook until the sweet potatoes are tender, about 25 minutes. Remove from the heat. Stir in the coconut milk and lime juice.

Step 2    

In batches, puree the soup until smooth. Serve hot, garnished with coconut flakes and cilantro sprigs.
