What nutrients are we talking about?

Sweet potatoes are extremely rich in beta-carotene, an antioxidant that converts to vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A is essential for the immune system, as well as our eyes, skin and mucous membranes. Sweet potatoes are also high in fibre, vitamin C, potassium, vitamin B5, B3 and B6, magnesium, manganese and copper, making them the ultimate health food.

Method:
  1. Preheat oven to 220°C. Place the sweet potato, cut-side up, on a large oven tray lined with non-stick baking paper. Drizzle with the oil. Cover with foil and cook for 1 hour or until tender. Set-aside until cool enough to handle.
  2. While the sweet potato is cooking, place the red curry paste and a drizzle of olive oil in a saucepan and cook until fragrant, then add the coconut 
milk and veggie broth and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat and keep lid on.
  3. Remove the sweet potatoes from the oven after 1 hour, and using a spoon, scoop out the flesh of each sweet potato, discarding the skins, and place in a blender. Add half the coconut mixture and blend until smooth. Return to the saucepan with the remaining coconut mixture and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until smooth and hot.
  4. Divide the soup between 4 bowls. Drizzle with some coconut milk and serve with fresh bread.
