I admit, I’m a big fan of almost anything curry flavored. The first time I had curry was at a Thai restaurant when I was living in Hawaii and it was love at first bite. Ever since, I’m drawn to anything curry-flavored and I’m always looking for new and unique ways to use it. And there’s something special about mixing curry and coconut milk that’s basically mind-blowing. Add if you add some sweet potatoes and red pepper, yes, it’s really that good.

This curry soup is also really easy to make in your slow cooker/blender. Give yourself 10 minutes to prepare and chop the veggies, then throw all the ingredients in a slow cooker/crockpot (no pre-frying or baking required). Cook for 6-8 hours on low or 3-4 hours on high until the sweet potatoes are soft when poked with a fork.

Then very carefully transfer the soup to a high powered blender or food processor (you may have to do this in 2 batches depending on the size of your machine). Make sure the top is on tightly and process the curry soup until smooth. Then carefully return the soup to the slow cooker. Serve immediately.

With minimal effort, you have a super nutritious, over-the-top flavorful, soup. 

To turn this soup into a fuller meal (and 6 servings):

  • Pour the soup over brown rice, which makes it more like a curry sauce instead of a soup.
  • Add baked or fried tofu, or even quinoa.

Also notice below the cute hemp napkin I received from Beautiful Ingredient, another plant-based blog. It’s made out of recycled ingredients, organic cotton and hemp. I love buying products I feel good about.

  • I only have full fat coconut milk on hand. Would that work as well if I just use a little less of it?

    • It will definitely be creamier (and maybe tastier) with full fat coconut milk, but you’ll have more calories/fat. You could probably use a little less and sub with a little vegetable broth. Let me know how it works out! =)
