Zuppa Toscana Soup
Zuppa Toscana Soup is one of our family's favorite dishes at Olive Garden. But lets face it. The Olive Garden version is full of unwanted carbs. And who wants those extra carbs? Not me! And why would I want my family eating all those carbs if they don't need to? Therefore, I wanted to make a low carb version of the delicious Zuppa Toscana that I can make easily in the crockpot!
Low Carb Zuppa Toscana Soup Crockpot Recipe
I love a potato.... In fact, the potato is my weakness. I have yet to be able to pass down a chip or french fry that has been wavered in my face. But I don't miss the potato in this soup. I filled it with some extra celery to replace the potato texture. Then added a boat load of that healthy kale. The spicy sausage flavors up the creamy soup. And the onions and carrots add additional flavor and texture. When you cook this low carb zuppa toscana in your crockpot, your kitchen is going to smell amazing.
YUMMMMM.... Nope! You won't miss the potato in this crockpot soup recipe! You are welcome!
I like to use spicy sausage when making this. It gives it a great taste. I even like to top it with crushed red peppers. But if you can't take the heat, you can use mild sausage.
This Healthy Crockpot Low Carb Zuppa Toscana Soup also freezes well so it is great to make a big batch and freeze half for later. Win, win!
