    I've started digging out some autumn recipes and this one is a winner. I subsituted the sweet potatoes with butternut squash.
    I also drizzled some evo over the soup before serving it.
     
  3. That looks amazing; I can imagine the taste, yum! I'm going to make this soup soon. :)

    It is very tasty and freezes well.

    Just one tip, beware of the chilli as it really does give a lot of heat. I usually
    use a 1/3 and freeze the rest.

    Looks awesome. Do you use canned coconut milk or the kind meant for drinking? I am guessing canned.

    Yes, coconut milk not water. You can also use a substitute if you don't have any available i.e. non dairy milk.
