Sweet Potato and Coconut Soup.... Nice!

This is a very simple recipe for a very tasty soup.... Can be a bit sweet for some tastes, but not me... I like it. I like it a lot!
It's thick and creamy, full of flavour. Add salt/pepper to suit your taste.... But most of all, goes great with fresh baked bread, like Nigel's Lazy Loaf.
