Need a cozy hug in the form of soup? This sweet potato bacon soup is savory, sweet and a whole lot of comfort wrapped up in one bowl. Don’t let the simple ingredients fool you! This dairy-free, paleo soup is bursting with flavor, perfect for a light lunch or dinner.
This soup pairs perfectly with a piece of crusty gluten free French bread and a simple salad. If you want a heartier meal, grill up some Italian sausages to go with.
With the help of the instant pot, sweet potato bacon soup comes together in less than 35 minutes, including time for that pressure to build! Amazing, right? Instant Pot dishes are my favorite because it means a lot of hands off in the dinner preparation department.
If you haven’t jumped on the instant pot train yet (WHY NOT?!), you can also make this in a slow cooker. It requires more dishes, but is better than missing out on sweet potato soupy goodness. You’ll want to cook the bacon and onions in a separate pan and then add the onions to the slow cooker with the sweet potatoes, apples and broth. Cook on low for 8 hours or until potatoes are softened.
For my potato-free friends, you can try this recipe with butternut squash or fresh pumpkin!
