Sweet Potato and Bacon Paleo Soup

By MarvinDecember 16, 2015

Recipe: Rebecca Bohl and Paleogrubs.com

This comforting soup has all of the flavor of a stew that has been simmering for hours, but it requires only thirty minutes of your time. This super easy recipe is perfect for wintery weeknights, when a bowl of steaming hot soup is the ideal meal.

Ingredients:

  • 3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and roughly chopped

  • 4 cups chicken broth, or more for desired consistency

  • 1 medium onion, diced

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp cumin

  • 1/4 tsp ground coriander

  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper

  • Pinch of cayenne

  • 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.
