This is my guessipe on that Tuscan Zuppa soup everyone is raving about. It's a one-pot method also! I played around with making it more Keto-friendly and came up with this recipe by deleting potatoes and adding cauliflower. I decided to also nix the bacon and just add some bacon grease to saute the onions with instead. It's difficult to find containers of broth that don't add sugar so you have to be careful and read the ingredients. We raise our own organic pigs so our sausage has little fat. All my ingredients are organic, btw. We love garlic so usually add a lot of it! Basil too!!

Wow, this Tuscan soup is amazing. It's basically a Keto-friendly Zuppa Toscana that's full of so much flavor thanks to Italian sausage, basil, and garlic. It is a little heavy on garlic but that can be cut back on and this recipe will still be flavorful. You could even use spicy sausage if you'd like. This soup recipe is indulgent but healthy. It makes a ton too so great if you're looking to meal prep lunch for the week. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
