The Best Carrot, Potato, Bacon Soup Recipe




If you've been following my stories on Instagram, you know that I had all four of my Wisdom Teeth taken out this past Friday.  Yes, it feels as painful as it sounds and even on Day 4 of recovery - I look like a member of Alvin and the Chipmunks. It's honestly the worst pain I've ever experienced - yep, worse than childbirth. I'm still not able to eat solid foods so I've basically been living off of smoothies and this DELICIOUS soup that my sweet hubby made for me. I couldn't resist sharing this soup with y'all so here is the recipe for you to enjoy!

Ingredients

 6 Yellow Potatoes 
4 Carrots - Peeled & Chopped
2 Celery Stalks - Chopped
6 Strips of Bacon - Chopped into small pieces
2 Pieces of Green Onion - Chopped
1 Yellow Onion -  Peeled & Chopped
1/4 Piece of Ginger - Peeled & Chopped
2 Garlic Cloves - Minced
2 Thai Basil Leaves - Chopped
2 Organic Bullion Cubes
6 Cups of Water
Olive Oil
Salt
Pepper

Put all ingredients in a large pot and drizzle with olive oil, salt & pepper.
Cook all at medium heat with the lid on until the potatoes are soft. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add 6 cups of water and bring to a boil. Add bullion cubes. Simmer with lid on for 20 minutes. Blend in a blender in batches. 
Serve and Enjoy.
