Roasted Sweet Potato and Coconut Curry Soup

One of the best things about fall is soup. It’s one of my favorite things to eat and the chilly weather brings on soup cravings full force. This recipe is actually a bisque and the smooth creamy texture paired with the flavor of the roasted sweet potatoes is simply fantastic. – Marla
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled & cubed
2 Tablespoon olive oil, divided
1 small onion, chopped
2 inch piece of fresh ginger root, grated
1 Tablespoon red curry paste [or a little less if you don’t like spicy]

3 Cups vegetable broth
sea salt & fresh ground pepper, to taste
