Vegan Thai Red Curry & Sweet Potato Chowder~泰式紅咖喱,蕃薯周打湯(純素)

Such a chilly wind and wet, typical English winter weather. What I only want to do is crouching in my sofa and wrap with my soft fleece blanket. Listening to my favourite  music and eating with one of my yummy soup. And don’t want anybody disturb me, just leave me to enjoy it.  I know it is my dream! Ok, stop any daydream and get back to my normal route.

Anyway, so pleased that I can make myself a delicious, lots of healthy veggie soup for this afternoon. Enjoying the peace and watching the tiny robins pacing on the lawn.

This creamy and rich Thai curry soup, full of sweet potatoes, carrot and red bell pepper. Delicate, creamy and sweet with coconut milk. Spicy with homemade curry powder. Fragrant with fresh lemon grass, are totally comforting!

  1. What I would give to have this bowl in front of me right now! I absolutely cannot get enough soup, even if I had it every single day, and this number looks so perfectly soothing. I adore the addition of lemongrass in particular.
