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.

Low-Carb Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana Soup

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!

    I love this soup! Thanks!

    • Lina D

      Enjoy Melanie! Thanks for stopping by.

  2. SammyJean

    Is the nutritional info for 1 serving or 6 servings? If 6, would I just divide the nutritional stats by 6? Thank you in advance, just on day 3 of Keto and don’t wanna mis-calculate!

    • Lina D

      Nutrition is for one serving. So this makes about 6 bowls of soup. Nutrition is for one. Hope that helps.

      • Carol

        15g carbs for one serving?

        • Tyler

          She miscalcuated in the recipe. I added all the net carbs together from the Sausage (about 3g) the onion (about 10g) the garlic (about 3g for 3 cloves) The cauliflower (2g per cup chopped so lets say you use 3 cups chopped cauliflower from a huge head of it = 6g total) and finally kale (1g in 3 cups fresh!!).

          26.5g net carbs for whole batch = 4.5 for a serving. This is very manageable on a 20g net carb daily limit.

          • Tyler

            in my above comment I did not account for the kale being chopped vs/unchopped so it is more then 4.5g per serving. Perhaps use spinach/collard greens in place of kale to bring down net carbs.

  3. Wendy Spackman

    I made this soup tonight and we all loved it! It was filling, a little spicey, so tasty and healthy to boot. Thanks so much for this recipe we will definitely be making it again. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Lina D

      Perfect! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Lynn

    This is a weekly staple in our house! All 3 kids fight over the leftovers!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Aww, that’s so great to hear, Lynn! Happy it has been such a hit! Thanks for the feedback!

  5. Judi Hoffmann

    This soup is delicious! I reduced the cream by half and added the bullion. The results were yummy with a little less calories!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay! Thanks for telling us the changes you made and that it was yummy, Judi Hoffmann!

  6. Kim

    I NEVER leave reviews! I made this the other night, I split it in half before adding the cauliflower, and put potatoes in half for the non-Keto husband. His review “I think this is better than the restaurants, and I really like the restaurants!” Very Hi praise from someone that usually says if that’s keto I aint eating!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Oh wow!! SO glad he enjoyed it! Thanks so much for sharing his review on this soup! We sure appreciate it! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™Œ

  7. Ashley

    When you make this in the crock pot, it doesn’t make mention of adding the water, just the broth? Is this correct? Just use the broth and no water for crock pot version??

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I would add the water and broth just like the stovetop! We will get this updated, Ashley!

  8. ashley

    Do you use water for the crock pot version. It only mentions putting in the broth.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes you use the water as well.
