While this recipe was extremely flavorful, I am only giving it 3 stars because the flavor was not particularly appealing to me. My husband tasted it and was surprised by the "intense" coconut flavor while I felt that the lemon and ginger were overpowering. I felt that there were too many strong conflicting flavors. I followed the advise on someone else's comment and pureed the sweet potatoes, a step I regretted as it turned the soup into a very very liquidy substance. I allowed it to simmer for about 2 hours which changed the soup into a more desirable consistency. I also added an extra teaspoon of curry paste because we like spice, which even that extra curry did not make it much spicier. It was beautiful with the sesame oil and cilantro in it when served! And I also did not have vegetable broth on hand and thus used chicken broth, which we could not taste in the soup so I don't think it made much of a difference. While my husband and I both ate the soup for dinner, we will not be making this soup again.
