Sweet potato, apple, coconut and chicken curry soup

At home we just LOVE this soup, it has so much flavor and just enough kick from the curry paste to keep it interesting; which mixed with the tang of the lemon juice makes for a really nice dinner experience. It is lovely and filling and in my opinion perfect for those nights you want something comforting with a twist. This soup delivers in all fronts!
