Bacon makes everything better, including this soup. So naturally, sweet red bell peppers are roasted to perfection then added to the carrot sweet potato bacon soup base. Carrots also provide this soup with a sweet flavor, while heavy cream gives it rich yet velvety consistency. This keto recipe even features a secret ingredient: tahini which adds a nutty and creamy texture. Alas, this carrot Sweet Pepper Bacon Soup would not be complete without a healthy serving of chopped crispy bacon.
