Coconut Sweet Potato Soup (gluten & dairy free)

This recipe is a go-to if you are short on time. Super quick and simple with minimal ingredients. The texture of the wine is a great match for the soup, yet the acid still shines through to balance some of the richness. The tree fruits and hints of oak in the wine are also great compliments the sweet potato and spices.
