The first time I made this soup, my husband raved about the flavor and couldn’t get over how good those white sweet potatoes made it taste. Since then, white sweets make a frequent appearance in the kitchen.

Ingredients
  

  • 8 slices thick cut bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 c red onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 c chicken bone broth, stock, or broth
  • 5 white sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 tsp dry thyme
  • 1/2 tsp curry powder
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp dried dill
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1 c frozen spinach, or 3 cups fresh spinach leaves
  • 1 c full fat canned coconut milk

Instructions
 

  • To begin, heat a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add in the bacon pieces and cook until the bacon is golden and crispy.
  • Use a slotted spoon and scoop the bacon from the pot and transfer it to a dish lined with paper towels. Set that aside for now.
  • Remove the excess bacon drippings, leaving about a tablespoon in the Dutch oven. Save the extra drippings for another recipe.
  • Saute the onion until just tender.
  • Add in the garlic and cook for just a minute.
  • Add in all of the remaining ingredients except the spinach, coconut milk and the reserved bacon.
  • Cook until the sweet potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes.
  • Stir in the spinach and coconut milk and cook just until the frozen spinach is thawed out, or if using fresh, until the leaves are wilted.
  • Enjoy!
