Low-Carb Zuppa Toscana Recipe
yield: 6 SERVINGS
prep time: 20 MINUTES
cook time: 20 MINUTES
total time: 40 MINUTES
- 1 pound Italian sausage (I used mild)
- 1 onion, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
- 16 oz. chicken broth
- 1 quart water
- 1 teaspoon bouillon (if desired for extra flavor)
- 3 cups kale or Swiss chard, chopped
- 1 cup heavy cream
Hip Tip: To make this in your slow cooker, brown the meat with onions and garlic, then place inside the slow cooker along with the broth and cauliflower. Cover and cook on HIGH for 4 hours or LOW for 6-8 hours. Stir in kale and cream at the end. Serve hot.
This soup is AMAZING!
It’s my favorite dish at Olive Garden, and the home-made low-carb version tastes so similar, maybe even better! My husband said he liked the cauliflower more than potatoes, and my kids actually ate the cauliflower without complaining! The leftovers are really great as well.
We really LOVED this easy low carb meal idea!
