Paleo Sweet Potato Soup With Bacon


PALEO SWEET POTATO SOUP WITH BACON

INGREDIENTS:

  • 6 slices sugar-free, nitrate-free bacon (like this from US Wellness Meats)
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 1 teaspoon Ras el Hanout
  • 1/2 tablespoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • dash cayenne pepper
  • 5 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes (2-3 large), peeled, quartered lengthwise, and sliced thin
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • garnish: fresh or dried chives

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Cut bacon into 1/4-inch slices and place in a cold soup pot. Heat the pot over medium-high heat and cook the bacon until it’s crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon to a plate covered with paper towels and set aside to drain and crisp.
  2. Keep 1 tablespoon of the fat in the pan and discard the rest. Re-heat the fat over medium-high heat, then add the onions, Ras el Hanout, salt, pepper, and cayenne. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are soft, about 5-7 minutes. Toss in the garlic and stir, cooking until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  3. Add the sweet potatoes, broth, and water to the pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer, cover, and cook until the potatoes are tender, about 10-15 minutes.
  4. Working in batches and being careful (please be careful, friends!), purée the soup in a food processor or blender until it’s smooth. Return to the pot, taste, and adjust seasonings. Ladle into bowls, then sprinkle with a little bacon and chives. Both the bacon and soup hold up well in the fridge for a few days.
