  3. The Long Way
  4. Poke holes in the sides of the sweet potatoes with a fork. Wrap them in aluminum foil and bake for about 45 minutes or until tender in a 400 degree oven. Let cool and scoop the insides into a blender, discarding the skins. Add the coconut milk, soy, lime juice, honey or sugar, Siracha, and curry paste to the blender. Blend until smooth. Pour into a pot and heat over medium low heat until desired temperature. Dish into bowls and serve with chopped peanuts, cilantro, and Siracha as garnish. Enjoy.

Notes

**use more or less depending on your desired spice level. 2 tbs of each makes for medium spicy. I like mine spicier so normally add an extra spoonful of each.

***Most microwaves have a potato setting that lets you customize the setting based on number of potatoes. Select the option for 2 if given the choice. You may need to microwave a little longer, depending on the size of the sweet potatoes. The potatoes are done when they are tender.
