Recipe : Summer Transition Soup

I am someone that can eat soup all year round.  There are so many delicious varieties out there and I LOVE making it, there's no reason not to eat it all the time. 
However because it has been SO SO hot lately, I have put my soup love on hold.
That is until this past weekend when Fall decided to peek it's head out just a little and it was a little cooler out.
Once I saw that coming on the forecast, I knew this soup was going on our menu.  I pinned this soup quite a while ago and have been dying to try it.
Let me just say, it did not disappoint.  At all.

I did make a few changes to the recipe but overall, followed it pretty closely.
You guys know me, I always have to add my own little twist of my own.
The biggest changes I made were:
-swapped out bacon for a rotisserie chicken- I will say this was a delicious decision, plus with the chicken already cooked, almost all of your work is done for you
-swapped out regular potatoes for sweet potatoes
-swapped heavy cream for a can of coconut milk
-did not put 2 cups in the food processor - while this part does sound delicious and creamy, we were getting slightly impatient to eat and generally prefer chunky soups
I am already planning when this can go on our menu again, it was quite the hit.
And with most soups, it was even better the second day. 
I loved how hearty, healthy and full of good for you veggies this soup had in it.

This recipe is really versatile — 2nd night I added eggplant, curry paste and coconut milk to the tomato base and it was even better.
