Sweet Potato-Coconut Soup

Joanne Bellezza-Loughlin


When I told my guys I was going to make Sweet Potato-Coconut Soup for Thanksgiving last year, they thought I was nuts. Then they tasted it.
This soup is wonderful. The coconut adds just the right amount of sweetness without being overpowering.
I've made slight changes to this Bobby Flay recipe.
