Sweet Tomato Bacon Soup

sweet-tomato-soup-2

Liz told me the other day, “Hey, I just made some tomato soup with sweet potatoes and it was awesome.” I tried it, and she was right. A topping of crispy bacon and green onion takes the whole thing straight to Crazytown. You won’t believe how delicious (and filling) this soup is until you try it. Expect to see several variations of this recipe on GFFBC in the near future.

  1. In a large pot with a lid, stir together chicken stock, canned tomatoes, sweet potatoes, chopped shallot, salt, and pepper.
  2. Bring to a simmer over medium high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for about 15 minutes until potatoes are very soft.
  3. Using an immersion/stick blender, carefully puree the soup until smooth. Return to the stove and keep on low heat, uncovered, to thicken.

  5. For serving, ladle soup into bowls and top with a generous portion of bacon pieces and green onions.

  1. I didn’t have and sweet potatoes on hand, so I subbed butternut squash and it was tasty! Since my squash was already cooked, I threw everything in my Vitamix, used the hot soup setting and had delicious soup in a matter of minutes.

    • Ohhhh thanks for the inspiration :)

  2. This looks sooooooo good!
