Keto Zuppa Toscana
This keto Zuppa Toscana soup is such a fun soup to make. So easy and so satisfying! The great thing is that it is pretty close to the non keto version, so if you love the original, then you are sure to love this one as well!
This is a great soup for the family or for meal prep even! It freezes well, warms up well, and it all around a very tasty, versatile soup.
Is Zuppa Toscana Soup Keto?
Yes, this Zuppa Toscana soup is definitely keto. Traditional Zuppa Toscana uses potatoes, but not this keto version. It uses... can you guess? Did you guess cauliflower? If you did, then you are 100% correct!
This Keto Zuppa Toscana soup comes in at only 6g net carbs which is a perfectly keto dinner!
Can I Use a Different Meat for Keto Zuppa Toscana
You absolutely can use a different meat for Zuppa Toscana. I feel that ground sausage tastes the best, of course. It adds the most flavor in my experience. You could also use regular ground beef and maybe throw in some bacon to get the same burst of flavor as sausage.
But, really, any ground meat will do just fine in this keto soup!
How to Store Zuppa Toscana
I've been known to simply put the lid on my crockpot and put it in the fridge and then simply warm it up in the crockpot base the next day. Can I make a suggestion? Do not use your stove to warm up your crockpot. I tried that once. And it cracked and spilled the contents all over the floor and counter. Lesson learned!
Otherwise, just put the leftovers in your favorite air tight container and store it in the fridge. It will keep well for at least 4-5 days.
Can I Freeze Keto Zuppa Toscana
Yes! I would make sure that the soup is completely cooled before adding it to an airtight freezer container. This helps it keep well. Make sure to use it within 6 months!
To reheat, simply thaw and add contents to the crockpot or a large pot and heat up.
How to Make Keto Zuppa Toscana
Place the ground sausage and onion in a skillet over medium high heat, and cook until the meat is browned and the onion has softened.
Stir in the garlic, and saute another 30 seconds. Add the meat mixture to a crockpot, and cover with the chicken broth. Mix in salt and pepper to taste as well as the cauliflower florets.
Cook on high for 3 hours.
Remove the lid, stir in the heavy whipping cream, parmesan cheese and kale.
Cover and cool an additional hour before serving.
Do I Have to Use a Crockpot for Keto Zuppa Toscana
No, you definitely don't! I like using a crockpot for a variety of reasons.
First, I love the "set it and forget it" aspect of the crockpot. I can get everything prepped and put it in the crockpot, clean up, go do some work or errands and then it is ready at dinner time.
Second, I really feel like it infuses the flavors when you let it sit and simmer for a few hours.
Having said all that, you can simply let it sit for a while and simmer on the stove instead of putting it in the crockpot. It will still be just as delicious!
