Sweet Potato Coconut Curry Soup

"I love the sweet flavor that both the sweet potato and the carrots add to this soup. Plus, anything with coconut is on my list of favorites. You can have this soup ready in as little as 30 minutes- with leftovers! This recipe is adapted from The Wanderlust Kitchen's Thai Sweet Potato and Carrot Soup"
