    Hi Casey
    How much coconut milk and oil do we need because it doesn’t mention it on the ingredients, unless I should know this anyway. Thanks

    How much coconut milk?

    • Casey November 11, 2016, 8:48 am

      Thanks to those of you that let me know there were a couple of ingredients missing. The recipe has been updated. You will need 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and 1/2 cup of coconut milk. Enjoy!

    Hi Casey,
    I was just wondering if you have an idea on the weight of the sweet potatoes, or how many cups of cubed potato? We rarely see a really small sweet potato in the grocery stores here, so I am looking at using larger potatoes.
    Thanks.

    • Casey November 16, 2016, 5:24 pm

      Two large sweet potatoes will be perfect or around 600g.

    I just made this soup using brown lentils since I didn’t have red. It’s not a very nice colour and would probably look nicer if red lentils had been used, but, it tastes good!! Do you have any idea of the nutritional counts for this recipe?

    • Casey December 2, 2016, 7:58 am

      So glad it tasted good. I don’t know the nutritional count unfortunately but I know it is very good for you :)
