Ingredients:  
1 1/2 lb orange fleshed sweet potatoes
1 T. vegetable oil
1 onion (chopped)
1 (2") piece fresh ginger (thinly sliced)
1 T. red curry paste
15 oz unsweetened coconut milk

1 T. sea salt
1 T. toasted sesame oil

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat the oven to 400. Place the sweet potatoes directly on the rack and bake until tender enough to easily pierce with a fork (approx. 45 minutes). Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Heat the oil in saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and ginger. Cook and stir until tender about 5 minutes. Stir in the curry paste and heat for 1 minute, then whisk in the coconut milk and vegetable broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for about 5 minutes. Remove the skins of the potatoes and cut into bite size chunks. Add to the soup and cook for 5 more minutes so they can soak up the flavor. Stir in lemon juice and season with salt. Ladle into bowls and garnish with a drizzle of sesame oil and cilantro.
