This dairy-free sweet potato coconut soup is smooth, tasty and filling.  Children and adults enjoy this soup. Sweet potatoes endlessly please and nourish.

The recipe calls for a small amount of coconut cream - just enough to make the soup velvety (and not too much to make the soup too rich).

This soup can be served as a appetizer or as a main dish.

This soup recipe is Pesach-friendly and it can be enjoyed all year around.
