Ingredients

  • 4 slices Paleo-Friendly Bacon, diced
  • 1 medium Onion, diced
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 6 cups Butternut Squash, diced
  • 2 cups Sweet Potato, diced
  • 1 cup Carrot, diced
  • 1 cup Apple, peeled and diced

  • 1 cup Full Fat Coconut Milk, canned

Directions

  1. In a large soup pot over medium-high heat, cook bacon until crisp. Use a slotted spoon to remove bacon to a paper towel-lined plate.

  4. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  5. Add butternut squash, sweet potato, carrot, apple, and vegetable stock.
  6. Bring to a boil, cover and lower to a simmer. Simmer for about 15 minutes, or until all the veggies are fork tender.
  7. Use an immersion blender (or transfer to a regular blender) to blend until smooth.
  8. Stir in coconut milk and season with salt and pepper.
  9. Top with the bacon and some pumpkin seeds before serving.
