DIRECTIONS

  • 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).
