Sweet Potato and Turnip Leaf Coconut Soup

imageIt’s possible! A tasty vegetarian soup! This recipe consists of sweet potato, turnip leaves and coconut milk, which makes the soup quite creamy with a rich taste. For the adventurous, this soup may also be served chilled instead of warm.

For a less creamy and lighter soup, water can be added to ” tone it down.”


1 cup grated sweet potato

1 cup turnip leaves cut into thin slices

5 cloves garlic, peeled amd crushed

2 tbsps ginger, minced

1/4 tsp turmeric

1 can (2 cups) coconut milk

Salt and pepper to taste

2 tbsps Olive oil


In a medium pan, heat Olive oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic and ginger and sauté for about a minute. Add in sweet potato and turnip leaves and stir-fry for three minutes. Add coconut milk and bring to a quick boil. Reduce heat to low. Add turmeric and salt and pepper to taste. Stir constantly. Continue to cook for five minutes. (Water may be added for a less creamy soup). Remove from heat and serve warm.
