Curried Coconut & Sweet Potato Soup
   I was at a bachlorette party in Toronto at some fancy vegan resturant.  The vegans loved it, I as a omnivore found the protien options....lacking.  I don't know what the heck a temph fish stick is but I had some seriously delicious soup.  Soup so good I had to go home and recreate it.  Here is my version of curried coconut and sweet potato soup.

1 acorn squash
3-4 sweet potatos
2 cans of coconut milk
1 pkg creamed coconut
4 cups stock (I use chicken or veggie)
Brown sugar
Curry Powder
Cinnimmon ( or Epicures gingerbread, apple pie or pumpkin pie spice)

-Pre heat oven to 350 degrees
-Stab sweet potatos mulitple times with a fork, place on cookie sheet
-Cut squash in half. scoop out seeds (we feed them to the chickens, you can compost them or throw them out)
-Stab the acorn squash mulitiple times.  I like the entire crevice to be filled with holes so the butter and seasonings can soak in.
-Using a fork spread aprox. 1 TBSP of butter around each of the hollows. 
-Sprinkle aprox. 1/4 tsp cinnimon and 1/2 TBSP brown sugar in each hollow.
-Add to cookie sheet with potatos.  cook about 1-1.5 hrs untill flesh is soft. 
*you can let them cool before handling or continue making soup, your choice
-In large soup pot on low heat, add your choice of stock.  
-Using a spoon, scrape squash from rind into the pot. do the same with the sweet potato.
-Using your hand mixer, blend untill no large chunks are left.
*you can use your immersion blender for this but it can burn out the moter, trust me
-Add 2 cans of coconut milk and creamed coconut.  Blend until mixed.
-Add 1tsp Cumin, 1tsp Curry, 1/2 tsp cinnimmon and 4 TBSP brown sugar.
-Add salt and pepper to taste
-Using your immersion blender, blend until smooth
*you can use your handmixer for this, but it might not be as smooth

At this point, its all up to you....if you want more spice, more sweet or a thinner soup change it to your liking.
