Soup of baked sweet potatoes and coconut milk

s to believe that you can mix something tasty from 2 ingredients and 3 - 4 spices in 5 minutes. But if Maria Elia says so in her cookbook, I believe her for once. And cook it. And then believe it all the more. Because that's one of those soupies that blew me away.

The special trick is that the sweet potatoes are completely baked in the oven with shell first (eg the evening before next to the television or, um , To blog). The soft tubers can then be peeled later with your fingers and are pureed in a coconut broth. By pre-cooking the sweet potatoes, the soup is particularly smooth and silky. In addition, there are two strong flavors ... and everyone is amazed at the table.

Incidentally, this is also the perfect soup to impress old school friends, new colleagues or critical mothers-in-law with little effort.
(Good luck, Denise!)
