Beef Bacon Wonton Soup
- 32 oz chicken broth
- 1/4 cup carrots, chopped
- 1/4 cup mushrooms, sliced
- 1 cup spinach
- 1 t garlic powder
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/2 cup arrowroot powder
- 1/2 t salt
- 1 egg white
- 1 cup full fat coconut milk
- 2 cup organic palm shortening
- 1/4 cup ground beef, cooked

How to Make It
1. In a large saucepan, combine broth, carrots, mushrooms, and spinach over low heat.
2. While soup is heating up, prepare the wontons.
3. Combine almond flour, arrowroot and salt together; stir in egg white and coconut milk until thoroughly mixed.
4. Heat shortening in a large skillet over low heat. Spoon out 2 tablespoons of wonton mixture and place in skillet. Heat for approximately one minute on each side and then remove; repeat this process until you run out of the wonton mixture.
5. Have your cooked ground beef and bacon nearby. Place them in a food processor or blender and blend until combined.
6. Place a small amount of beef bacon filling into the center of each wonton wrapper. Fold up edges to form the shape of a wonton and then place back in the skillet with the shortening and cook for one minute on each side again, allowing wonton to get crispy. Repeat this process for all wontons.
7. Add wontons to soup and enjoy!
