Ready In:




  • 1. Cook bacon in a large saucepan and then remove the bacon to paper towels and leave the grease. I have also cooked the bacon in the microwave in a microwave safe plate lined with paper towels then squeezed the grease out of the paper towels into the pot I cook the soup inches Works fine that way too.
  • 2. Saute the onions in the bacon grease for 4 minutes or until they are tender.
  • 3. Sprinkle with arrowroot starch then cook and stir for about 1 minute.
  • 4. Slowly add chicken broth while stirring.
  • 5. Add the potatoes and bring to a boil.
  • 6. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 to 30 minutes, or until potatoes are very tender.
  • 7. Use a potato masher to mash the potatoes. If you like chunks of potato, don't mash much. If you like it less chunky, mash a lot. If you like it creamier, you can use an immersion blender.
  • 8. Add nutritional yeast and stir.
  • 9. Add coconut milk and stir.
  • 10. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and crumbled bacon.
  • 11. Additional toppings could include green onions, fresh basil, fresh pico de gallo (shredded cheese or sour cream if you're not on Whole30 and tolerate dairy).

I love to cook healthy, but I want it to be easy and delicious! HA! I like cooking with an instant pot and the crockpot. Cooking in the oven is long as I don't have to do a lot of prep work to get it in the oven. I am a teacher and don't have time for complicated and time consuming recipes during the school year. During the summer, it's a different story. I'll cook those complicated and time consuming recipes. I have a bit more time for that. I like a good farmer's market where I can get fresh vegetables Because, let's face it, those farmer's market vegetables just taste better! Nothing beats fresh fruits and vegetables and summer is the best time to enjoy those. I really enjoy cooking for my husband and family, gatherings with friends and family, church and work potlucks, and anyone else who needs something to eat. hahaa I like trying new and always delight in finding a new treasure to add to the recipe box. My mother was a fantastic cook! I've never had fried chicken as good as hers. Her chocolate pie was the absolute best. She made the best lasagna, chicken and dressing, chicken pot pie, Christmas candy, cakes, and pies. Although mom and I cook differently, I learned so much from her about cooking good food. So, really I owe my cooking skills to my mom.
