    1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Place the sweet potatoes directly on the rack and bake until tender enough to easily pierce with a fork, about 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
    2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan or soup pot over medium heat. Add the onion and ginger; cook and stir until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the curry paste and heat for 1 minute, then whisk in the coconut milk and vegetable stock. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for about 5 minutes.
    3. Remove the skins from the sweet potatoes and cut into bite size chunks. Add to the soup and cook for 5 more minutes so they can soak up the flavour. Stir in lemon juice and season with salt. Ladle into bowls and garnish with a drizzle of sesame oil and some freshly chopped coriander.
