  1. Heat olive oil in a medium pot over medium-high heat.
  2. Once the pot is hot, sauté onions, sweet potato, and carrots for 8-10 minutes; stir occasionally.
  3. Add the spices, coconut milk, and broth to the pot. Cook for another 5 minutes, then cool for 3-4 minutes.
  4. Transfer to a blender and puree until smooth. (Always be careful blending hot ingredients. If they are too hot, they can blast the top off the blender, sending hot liquid in all directions.)
  5. Place the blended ingredients back in the pot and warm for another 2-3 minutes.
  6. Add a garnish of your choice and serve. Options include: fresh cilantro, grated coconut, or coconut cream.
