Italian Sausage Soup With Kale (Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana Soup)
Favorite soup EVER.
Olive Garden’s Zuppa Toscana Soup is that for me. In fact, a few years ago I made a copycat version of the recipe that I could cook up in my slow cooker.
Of course, one of the reasons I LOVE to cook it that way is because I can use handy dandy slow cooker liners and not have to worry about clean up. At all.
And I’ve used that recipe a ton.
Here it is:
You know when you take a bite of the best food you’ve ever had and you just want to eat it again and again? Because a couple bite-fulls will just never be enough.
So, we had to make it again, sans slow cooker.
And this one is just as good.
You’ll definitely want to pair it up with our Copycat Olive Garden Breadsticks,
or maybe some Rosemary Bread.
Is Kale Good For You?
You better believe it.
Kale is a superfood, and this soup is a super delicious way to prepare it. Eating kale has been shown to reduce cholesterol, reduce risk of cancer, and even to help detoxify the body.
In fact, we’re seeing kale pop up in recipes everywhere. Like the yummy Kale and Blueberry Salad we whipped up.
What started as a popular fad has gone mainstream. It’s that important.
Zuppa Toscana is a gentle foray into the world of kale. The fat in the soup will actually help your body absorb the important nutrients found in this green.
Eat your greens. Eat your soup. Love your body.
