This Sweet Potato Bacon Soup is the perfect marriage of savory flavors with a comforting, creamy texture from nutritious sweet potatoes. It’s easily my all-time favorite soup, and I don’t even like sweet potatoes that much. In fact, it’s my go-to for getting something orange into my diet, especially during times of illness when I may not be quite as willing to tolerate flavors I’m not super fond of. (And this soup is certainly healthier than chicken noodle ever was!) Don’t be put off by the inclusion of lots of artichoke: They add a wonderful depth of flavor and are jam-packed with antioxidants. The nearest approximation I can think of would be roasted celery or celeriac if you wanted to try those instead, but don’t hold me to the results because I’ve only ever made this soup with the prescribed artichokes. You could use fresh, steamed artichoke hearts if you’d prefer, but you’d need about 3 1/2 pounds of them. If you serve this as a side, you can easily get eight servings out of it instead of four: I think it would pair very nicely with a small salad and some lemony fish or chicken!
