Honey-Sweetened Coconut Soup with Sweet Potato, Kabocha Squash and Beans

coconut soup with sweet potato and beans


One morning, I really felt like a sweetened coconut milk soup for breakfast and came up with this rather weird concoction. Ok, it’s not that weird, I mean, my father used to make a pasta dish with a super-sweet sugary broth and served it with boiled eggs. However, the honey in this soup did lend a rather “honey-ish” flavor to the soup (not surprisingly). I couldn’t really work out if I liked this overpowering flavor of honey or not, but it did satiate my need for something coconut-ty, sweet and homely. If I were to make it again, I might stretch it a little bit by using maple syrup instead of honey.
