Paleo Sweet Potato Soup

          The weather is getting colder, and soup has been calling my name. I had a long day at school and work last week, and I came home to this incredible meal. This Sweet Potato Soup is a good equivalent to the Potato Soup we have all grown up having. My friend tasted this yesterday, and she said she thought it was even better!

  • 3 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 yellow onion
  • 5 pieces of bacon
  • 3 tbsp almond meal
  • 4 tbsp Organic butter or coconut oil
  • 1 can organic unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup to 1 cup water
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Dice potatoes into 1/2 inch to 1 inch pieces.
  2. Mix potatoes, onion, flour, and a pinch of salt in bowl. Stir and set aside for 10 minutes.
  3. As you allow that to set, put a pan on medium heat and add 3-4 tbsp coconut oil or Organic butter. While you do this, go ahead and cook your slices of bacon in a separate pan.
  4. Add potato mixture into a large pot then stir in your butter or oil. Make sure this is thoroughly mixed.
  5. Add 1/2 cup to 1 cup water or until all potato pieces are covered.
  6. Bring to boil once water is added.
  7. Lower temperature back down, and add your coconut milk. You will bring the pot back to a boil after this.
  8. Lower temperature to a simmer. Allow to simmer for 25-30 minutes. Stirring occasionally. This is where you add your bacon. Crumble throughout and mix. Add salt and pepper here to taste.
