Added some scotch bonnet pepper and fresh thyme to give it a little West Indian edge.
I had to make a few vegetable substitutions to avoid a trip to the groc shop in pouring down rain. But it made no difference to my husband who told me to "Write that recipe down, it's wonderful." I substituted butternut squash for the sweet potato but I was afraid it might be too hard and not as flavorful. So I took the squash and the potatoes and roasted them at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes...wasn't timing it... to sweeten them up. Then I added them into the soup about 15 minutes before it was done. The roasted aspect came through and added an extra flavor dimension. I substituted English peas for the edamame. When I served it, I topped it with lime and cilantro as I had none of the other items. I will definitely make this, again, but will shop in advance so that I have all the correct items on hand!It is a lot of prep work, but it was worth it. And it makes a ton. So thanks to SL for the recipe, and the tip on freezing, as well.
Simple enough to make, freezer friendly and delicious, my favorite kind of recipe. I waited 10 minutes between potatoes and sweet potatoes, I find potatoes take longer to cook and sweet potatoes turn to an unpleasant mush when over cooked and the 10 minutes worked out great.
So good! I like to always keep some in the freezer for a quick lunch or dinner.
I tried a Curried Chicken Chowder at Hale & Hearty in NYC and hoped this recipe was a copycat. It was not, but with a little tweaking it was EXCELLENT! I followed the recipe exactly as written, but it was not as creamy or sweet as what I had in NYC. I added a tablespoon of sugar to the recipe and served it over a heaping tablespoon of non-fat Greek yogurt (don't add to the pot or the yogurt will separate). It was delicious!
Very good. I froze half for later and it reheated beautifully. Lots if great flavors. I preferred it with all of the suggested toppings.
Delicious! The chopping too a little while, but totally worth it! The coconut milk added a touch of sweetness.
