  2. "I can only guess, since I haven't made it that way. I would use about 2 cups chicken stock to simmer the ingredients on the stove, then add the coconut milk when the sweet potatoes are tender. Be sure the stock is mostly cooked away before you add the coconut milk. Techlazy.com Crazyask.com Howmate.com

Its really a pretty simple soup but it packs in nice flavour 🙂 We made it once with thing pork butt and that was great, and we made it once with daikon and cabbage and that was also great. Very versatile soup base.UpdateLand
