Now, add sweet potato, carrots, red pepper, and stir to combine them with the onions. Next, add your vegetable broth (vegetable stock), canned coconut milk, peanut butter, soy sauce, and stir to combine. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat, and let it simmer until all of the vegetables are soft and cooked, approximately 30 minutes.

Turn off the heat and let the soup cool for 5 – 10 minutes and then use an immersion blender or add it to your blender and blitz it until it’s a smooth consistency, you may have to do this in batches.

Taste and season with salt and pepper. Garnish with a swirl of canned coconut milk or sour cream (but not for vegans). We used red pepper flakes and cilantro leaves, salt and pepper, Red pepper flakes, and cilantro to garnish. Super tasty, super warming – serve and enjoy!
