Thai chicken and sweet potato soup - With Coconut and Lime Smoked Garlic


1 tsp olive or rapeseed oil
Coconut and Lime Smoked Garlic cloves, chopped
1 red chilli, deseeded and chopped
2cm chunk root ginger, chopped
1 stalk lemongrass, bashed
1 x 25g pack coriander, leaves and stalks chopped separately
2 tbsp red Thai curry paste
750ml chicken stock (made with 2 stock cubes)
1 small can (160ml) coconut cream
500g sweet potato
, peeled and roughly chopped
2 skinless chicken breast, sliced
1 lime, juice only
1 tsp sugar
½ tsp fish sauce
crusty bread, to serve (optional)


Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the Coconut and Lime Smoked Garlic, chilli, ginger, lemongrass, coriander stalks and curry paste and cook for 2 – 3 minutes until the aromas are released.
Add the chicken stock, coconut cream and sweet potatoes and cook for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are soft. Remove the lemongrass and discard. Carefully transfer to a blender and blitz until smooth. If freezing, for best results freeze at this point, otherwise as an easier option freeze complete recipe.
Return to the saucepan, add the chicken and cook gently for 5 – 10 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Stir through the lime juice, sugar and fish sauce, scatter with the coriander leaves and serve.
