COOK: Comfort food aka Ginger Potato Coconut Soup

I've to say: Even I think this weeks post is a bit lame. But right now my life is pretty much sucked in by university. The few times I do not spend my days there, I do sport (a bit), eat or sleep. Sewing or doing anything creative is not really on my schedule. So I simply took my camera with me when I made myself some nice comfort food.
Autumn feels like winter already, so eating hot food with a lot of healthy stuff like ginger is one of my favorite things to do. Especially when the sky is grey and the city covers itself in mist. So even my wish of staying inside all day is destroyed by my education, I at least love having a nice soup. At least my brain suggested so, because I rarely to never made soup up to now.
And for that I really loved my kind of Asian result...

What we need (for 1 person):
150 ml coconut milk
50 ml cream
2 potatoes
a good piece ginger
vegetable stock (+ 500 ml water)
curry + spices

1. Dice your potatoes and ginger and put them into the boiling water (about 500 ml) and your vegetable stock.
Let it cook for about 10 - 15 minutes (depends on your dice size).
2. When your potato dices are good, add in cream, milk and spices, especially the curry.
Let it cook for another few minutes, so the liquid reduces down.

Serve your soup with roasted bread and hopefully we all will survive the cold, without being miserably sick. I feel my cold already coming -.-
