Coconut Yam Soup

by Simla on January 31, 2010

This recipe is simple, soothing, warming, and perfect for winter. The healthy fats help lift your mood and support your stress hormones, the intense vitamin A from the yams help strengthen your immune system plus your eyes, for those quiet days spent reading indoors.

3 ingredients. Make it tonight!

Makes about 4-6 servings. You can always freeze extras for another day.


2 large or 4 small yams, peeled & cut in chunks (you can also use sweet potatoes)coconut
1 can coconut milk (regular, not light)
2 cups chicken or vegetable stock, or filtered water – more for consistency if desired
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste


  1. Place chunked yams into pot with can of coconut milk and water or stock. Let simmer until the yams are soft and can easily be pierced by a fork. The smaller you cut the pieces of yam, the quicker they will cook.
  2. Process yams and coconut milk in blender or food processor to desired consistency, or use your hand blender to do so.
