Sweet Potato Soup with Lentils and Pancetta Bacon

This faff-free sweet potato soup is great for the whole family. It's an easy weekday tea, taking about 30 minutes to cook and a great meal to sit down to at the table, together. We recommend our nitrite-free pancetta bacon in this soup which is also sugar-free and artisan-made. These ingredients will make 4 servings.
