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.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes

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

  1. To begin, heat a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add in the bacon pieces and cook until the bacon is golden and crispy.
  2. 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.
  3. Remove the excess bacon drippings, leaving about a tablespoon in the Dutch oven. Save the extra drippings for another recipe.
  4. Saute the onion until just tender.
  5. Add in the garlic and cook for just a minute.
  6. Add in all of the remaining ingredients except the spinach, coconut milk and the reserved bacon.
  7. Cook until the sweet potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes.
  8. 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.
  9. Enjoy!
