DIRECTIONS

  1. Chop bacon into 1-inch pieces and cook until crispy in a medium soup pot.  Remove from pot, leaving grease in pot, and place into a bowl.  Drizzle with maple syrup and toss to coat.  Set aside.  
  2. To the pan with the retained grease, add butter, chopped white onion and minced garlic.  Cook on low heat until onion is translucent; about 5 minutes.  Add the canned pumpkin and stir to combine.  Using either an immersion blender or a regular blender, puree soup until smooth.  Return puree to the pot and add the chicken stock, smoked paprika, cumin, cayenne, mushrooms and cream.  Simmer until the mushrooms are tender, about 30 minutes.  Serve immediately in a mug with the maple bacon on top.

Cooking Tip

Did you know that you can easily portion out and freeze soup to save for a busy night down the road? When ready to reheat, either microwave or heat up in a pot over the stove with a splash of water.

How we calculate the Net Atkins Count™

In the Atkins Nutritional Approach®, the Net Atkins Count™ is calculated by subtracting the number of grams of fiber and polyols (such as glycerin and sugar alcohols) from the total grams of carbohydrates in whole foods. This reflects the idea that fiber and polyols minimally impacts blood sugar levels at the doses present in the products.
