Whole30 and paleo friendly bacon cheeseburger soup! This dinner was too good you guys!
So I am always looking for different dinner ideas, and I need them to be EASY, contain minimal ingredients, and as little fancy cooking methods as possible. When they contain bacon, burger, and a creamy cheesy flavor it's a major win! Since I pretty much continued following the whole30/paleo way of eating (what I call "feel good fit") after my whole30 experiment, when the recipes follow those guidelines (and sound like this) they immediately have my attention!
This whole30 and paleo friendly soup is a perfect weekend meal, in my opinion. It's always on the weekends (usually Sunday) that we want something comfort food style that doesn’t leave us feeling like garbage...well this was it!
Another huge bonus with this soup recipe - it made plenty of leftovers so I didn't have to think about another lunch or dinner that week.

Whole30 and Paleo Bacon Cheeseburger Soup
Recipe Ingredients (My complete list, modified from the original recipe)
1 lb ground beef (I prefer grass fed)
1 tsp sea salt, divided
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil oil
1 yellow onion, diced
4 cloves roasted garlic
1 cup shredded carrots
4 stalks celery, chopped
2 cups teeny tiny white potatoes, chopped tiny, chopped
2 cups chicken broth
2.5 cups beef bone broth
1 cup coconut milk (full fat)
1/2 tsp black pepper
3 tbsp nutritional yeast
3–4 slices of uncooked bacon
2 cups kale or spinach
1 T. tapioca starch
Compliant Pickles, chopped
Head over to Unbound Wellness for the full (original) recipe ! Here are the changes I made:
Added chopped kale (gotta get those greens in!)
Roasted and doubled the Garlic
Doubled the nutritional yeast
Used chopped teeny tiny white potatoes from @traderjoes instead of sweet potatoes
Cooked the bacon halfway and let it finish cooking in the soup, left a little out to top with
Cooked the veggies a little longer because I like them soft
Added a slurry of tapioca starch + water to thicken it a tiny bit towards the end to thicken it a bit
That's it! Let me know if you try this out - you won't be disapointed! ..
