Sweet Potato and Bacon Paleo Soup
sweet potato soup recipe
Ingredients
  1. 3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and roughly chopped
  2. 4 cups chicken broth, or more for desired consistency
  3. 1 medium onion, diced
  4. 4 cloves garlic, minced
  5. 1/2 tsp salt
  6. 1/2 tsp cumin
  7. 1/4 tsp ground coriander
  8. 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
  9. Pinch of cayenne
  10. 4 slices bacon
Instructions
  1. Place the bacon into a large skillet and cook until crisp. Set aside on a paper towel-lined plate and crumble into pieces. Set aside.
  2. Transfer one tablespoon of the bacon fat to a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, salt, cumin, coriander, pepper, and cayenne. Sauté for 5-7 minutes until the onion is soft. Add the sweet potatoes and chicken broth to the pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes until the potatoes are tender. Adjust the salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Using an immersion blender, puree ingredients in the pot until smooth. (Alternatively, carefully transfer to a blender.) Serve warm garnished with crumbled bacon.
