Sweet Potato Apple Soup w/Bacon

I am unapologetically a soup girl.  I am also a girl living in the south where fall has not yet visited upon us, so I am doing incantations.  By the power of sweet potato and all things pumpkin spice, I shall summon fall from my kitchen!

This is the soup I made last week, when the highs were in the upper 80’s, and the humidity stubbornly remained in a similar range, except in the mornings when it was 100%.  Because that’s how I roll, people. Also, because…bacon.  

There are a couple of things you’ll need for this recipe:

*A good blender (I use this one. It’s not fancy, but it’s a work horse!)

* Some already roasted sweet potato chunks (I have a recipe here.)

*Some amazing bone broth (Here’s how to make your own.)

Be well!

Sweet Potato Apple Soup w/Bacon covers all the flavor bases. It’s sweet, salty, starchy, yummy and autumnal – but you can eat it any time!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 C. bacon, 1/2″ slices

  • 1 C. chopped onion

  • 1 C. apples, peeled, seeded and shredded

  • 1/2 t. sea salt

  • 1 t. dried thyme

  • 2 C. roasted sweet potato cubes

  • 4 C. bone broth

  • 2 t. apple cider vinegar

  • Scallions for garnish

Directions

  • Prepare all ingredients before starting anything else.  This is important.  You’ll need to work quickly to prevent burning.
     
  • In a soup pot over medium heat, sauté bacon until very crisp.  Do not allow the bacon to burn. Remove bacon from the pot with a slotted spoon to a paper towel-lined plate.
  • Quickly add onions to the remaining bacon grease.  Sauté until translucent. Add apples, salt and thyme.  Sauté for a minute, or two. Add sweet potatoes, and sauté until they are soft. Add bone broth and vinegar.  Heat through.
  • Working in batches, purée in a blender until very smooth. Return to pot.  Heath through. Garnish with bacon pieces and scallions.
