Joel’s Thai Sweet-Potato Soup

The team at Night Beats Productions is working night and day on The Sad Bastard Cookbook. An essential element of this cookbook is community—sharing recipes and learning new meals. This suggestion from Joel Troster sounded so good that Rohan O’Duill had to make it for himself!

We won’t be including this particular meal in the cookbook—it’s a bit more effort than we personally can manage when we’re in the depths of depression. But it is delicious. So we decided to share the recipe with everyone on this blog. Enjoy!

A bowl of soup


2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 red onion, chopped
1 can coconut milk
1 litre vegetable stock
1 2-3 inch piece of fresh ginger, grated
1 tsp Thai red curry paste
salt and pepper to taste


Put everything into a pot.

Bring to a boil and simmer until the sweet potatoes are soft.

Run through a blender or use an immersion blender until smooth.
