Sliced leek (white part) (50 g)
Sliced laminated white onion
1 Clove of garlic (crushed without peel)
Fresh coconut flakes (40 gr)
3 Branches coriander - leaves and stems
Half a teaspoon turmeric powder
2 Tablespoons of olive oil
Sea salt (as needed)
Light coconut milk (400 ml)
Vegetable broth or hot water (0.5 l)
In a pan add the oil, onion, leek, crushed garlic and sauté slightly until the vegetables are translucent.
Add the corn, sweet potatoes, stock, coconut milk and season with salt. Then add the turmeric and boil over medium heat for 20 minutes.
