Out Tuscan Keto soup is made with easy-to-find ingredients you may already have in your fridge or pantry:

  • Garlic: Always a lot of fresh garlic! Use garlic powder, 1 or 2 teaspoons if you don’t have fresh garlic at hand.
  • Sundried tomato: Add incredible flavor to the soup. If you want to cut more carbs, use diced fresh tomatoes instead,
  • Oregano: A mild seasoning herb that brings up these wonderful Mediterranean flavors. Use Italian seasoning if you like, but keep in mind the flavor might be stronger.
  • Whipping cream: Makes the keto soup creamy and helps raise the fat content for keto dieters.
  • Chicken broth: Make sure to use low sodium chicken broth.
  • Kale: Laccinato or dinosaur kale are both fine for this soup recipe. Be careful with store-bought chopped kale, the stems can be mixed with the leaves.

    What length of time I recommended for slow cooker or does everything go ok fully cooked?

    This recipe is delicious. Just wish I could print it in two pages instead of five, with just the recipe and instructions. Is there a way to do that? Thanks.

    This is one of the most delicious soups I've ever eaten! This soup will be a regular on my meal planning agenda.

    This recipe is so delicious even with fresh tomatoes!!

  • Jennifer

    2021-10-13 20:31:29

    This was very good! I had not used my InstantPot before so I was a little unsure on using the saute feature. So I cooked the sausage, garlic, onions and oregano on the stove top and then moved it to the InstantPot and finished it there. I wasn't sure if the InstantPot did something special (like thickened it) so that is why I finished it there, but it didn't seem to do anything it wouldn't have done in the pot. Anyway, just thought I'd share it can be done on the stovetop too.

    The first few times I made this, I followed the recipe exactly…and it was amazing! My husband and I are not huge fans of sundried tomatoes, but we still very much enjoyed it. After making it probably 30 times, the only adjustments I’ve made was replacing the tomatoes with roasted red peppers, I add a can of cannellini beans (with the juice, helps to thicken the broth) and subtract one cup of the chicken broth. I’ve also added mushrooms on occasion. I hate being the person that adjusts recipes and talks about it, but here I am doing it anyway! Not 100% Keto because of the beans, but still hearty, delicious, and healthy-ish! I hope that this helps someone/gives someone ideas on how to make an amazing recipe a little spin😁

    My entire family loves this! Super easy and quick.

  • Andrea

    2021-05-04 19:11:29

    Delicious!! I used vegetable broth as well and a can of fire roasted tomatoes instead of sun dried tomatoes. Added a little less cream as I like my soup thick..will be be making it in the future warm and hearty!!

  • Stevie

    2021-04-10 16:12:21

    I love this soup, I make it all the time!!! I've altered the recipe to make it vegetarian using vegetable broth (better than bullion), a package of tofurkey italian sausage, and I also add 16 oz of chopped, sauted, baby bella mushrooms. Sometimes, to mix it up, I add some roasted red peppers, as well - making it this way it is a lot lighter and a lot less greasy - I'm absolutely hooked!!!

    Amazing recipe! I use a whole jar of sun dried tomatoes and substitute a bag of spinach for the kale. SO EASY and so good!

  • Sherri

    2021-03-14 20:48:09

    Amazing!! We eat this soup about every other week. Delicious!

  • Courtney

    2021-03-10 11:48:12

    This is a great recipe. I like to add cauliflower rice (frozen) at the end with the kale.

  • Tara

    2021-02-24 10:14:23

    Delicious! To be truly keto (11g carbs per serving down to 5g with modifications), reduce the amount of onion, sub fresh tomato for the sun dried (super high in carbs) and fresh spinach for the kale. Plus watch the brand of sausage/meat you use - a lot of sausages have added sugar. Easy to make on stove-top, as well.

  • Ashton

    2021-02-22 00:56:34

    Made this recipe on the stove instead of an instant pot but it was super easy and turned out perfect! It was very flavorful and filling! Loved it so much, I will definitely make it again :)

  • Carsen

    2021-02-18 17:57:09

    Trying to make this on the stove , what should I do differently for that ? Thank you !

  • Caryn

    2021-02-16 13:21:07

    This was really good! Since my family isn’t much for hot Italian sausage I used 1 pound of mild chicken Italian sausage and then one link of hot just to add some flavor. They always like more meat in their soup anyway. Loved the kale!

  • Jackie

    2021-02-08 20:00:39

    So good!

  • Duana

    2021-01-29 19:36:12

    Excellent. I used what I had: ground turkey, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, s & p, paprika and bay leave. I sautés onion, celery and garlic with the meat. Added 4 cups ckn stock, a can of diced tomatoes cook 6 min. Then I added some chopped zucchini, spinach and a bloc of fat free cream cheese and out lid back on for 8-10 minutes. Delicious.

  • Myrna

    2021-01-19 20:15:00

    This was really delicious. I didnt have sausage so I used ground beef. It tasted healthy yet still like comfort food.

  • Michelle

    2021-01-15 18:04:13

    "10 out of 10!" is what my husband said, and "this recipe belongs in a 5 star restaurant!" This is after saying last nights dinner was a "5 out of 5!" I have to agree your recipe is REALLY good and I've shared it with to my mom and sister :-D

  • Kc

    2021-01-14 20:48:57

    I added chicken breast to this recipe and used Oktoberfest sausage and it was friggin amazing! The whole family loved it. Tastes like the soup from the Olive Garden minus the potatoes

  • Andrea

    2021-01-12 20:21:57

    Yum! Made a single recipe, but doubled the sausage and used one pkg hot and one pkg mild. Also added some Italian seasoning and used fresh spinach instead of kale. So yummy! Also made it on the stove since I don’t have an instapot. Super easy! Trying to figure out how many carbs per serving.

  • John

    2021-01-11 15:20:32

    DELICIOUS! I served this for a small dinner party and everyone wanted the recipe. Even better leftover. I used a stovetop rather than instant pot. Still easy. I also substituted the kale with spinach and broke with Keto a bit and substituted 1cup of the chicken stock with 1cup white wine. I added the wine first and let the alcohol burn off a few minutes then added the chicken stock.

  • Sue Diener Hart

    How can I make this on a crockpot?

  • Dawn

    2021-01-10 18:00:42

    Its was so easy to do. Tastes great. Will make again. I used ground turkey in it. Lots of flavor.

  • Jenni

    2021-01-10 11:52:30

    If using a crock pot, how long and on what setting? Thanks.

  • Cindy Gory

    2021-01-09 07:42:36

    Followed the recipe to the T and it was delicious. My husband loved it. Will definitely make it again.

  • Barb

    2021-01-04 21:46:35

    This was really good! I've never used kale before. I added some frozen corn and paprika and cayenne pepper. Will make this again, thank you!

  • Lisa

    2021-01-04 21:43:04

    OMG! Sooo good! Big hit in the house. Used smoked garlic sausage from costco that I was trying to get rid and put in red pepper flakes. Trying to keep it more low carb so didn't use sun dried tomatoes but used can diced and drained liquid. Did add a pinch of cream cheese like someone else suggested. HUGE HIT!

  • Cara

    2021-01-03 21:36:54

    This was great and really easy. I did not use spice sausage. I used Trader Joe’s sun dried tomatoes in the pouch. I’m not a big fan of kale so I cut it really small and I didn’t mine it at all. I will def make again.

  • Mary

    2021-01-03 15:18:11

    5 star. The only thing I do differently is remove the sausage from pot and Then do the onions alone for 3 minutes, then oregano and then garlic for only 45 seconds before I add back the sausage and sauté them for a minute. I also added 1 1/2 cups of riced cauliflower and cooked that in the soup. I reduced the kale a bit because of the cauliflower...... Delish,

  • Joan

    2021-01-01 21:54:46

    I’ve made it a few times and we love it. But I noticed your picture shows more red oil... maybe I should not drain the sun dried tomatoes all the way???

  • Joan

    2021-01-01 18:52:31

    Delicious! It’s now a staple in my house! I’ve used kale and spinach too! I think I prefer kale but both yummy! I might try keto noodles or zoodles next time... love this soup!

  • Lisa

    2020-12-20 15:40:02

    We tried this soup yesterday and it’s now my husbands favorite. So good!! We had spinach in the house instead of Kale and it worked out just as fine (FYI).

  • Ann

    2020-12-17 18:10:14

    It’s delicious. I made but didn’t have sun dried tomatoes. Substituted can tomatoes with a little tomato paste. I added small chopped potatoes and kernel corn. Also added Hungarian paprika

  • Kristin

    2020-12-09 17:36:30

    This is amazing!! We have it about once a week. Thank you

  • Sam

    2020-11-22 16:44:47

    Made this in a Dutch oven today. It was absolutely fantastic! The entire family loved it. Added some hot Hungarian paprika to spice it up a bit more.

  • AnneMarie Moorehouse

    2020-11-20 17:16:13

    This was delicious! Made it in crock pot ~ sautéed everything first. I also added sautéed baby Bella mushrooms. I doubled the recipe because I knew I’d live it based on reviews.

  • Colleen

    2020-11-20 10:24:12

    I made this soup last night for my family and it was a huge hit!! I never leave recipe reviews, but felt compelled to because this was SO good. I don't follow Keto, so I added two cans of cannellini beans since I was feeding six people, also used hot italian turkey sausage since we don't eat pork. I made 1.5x the recipe and it was true to serving size for 6 people. Tasted really good with some warm foccaccia bread (if you're not Keto). Also very easy to do on a stove top if you don't have an instant pot!

  • Kathy Stuart

    2020-11-10 17:59:20

    This soup is AMAZING!!!! I doubled the recipe taking advice from the woman that said there wasn’t enough for leftovers. So glad I did. It’s spicy, creamy and so filling. My non-Keto loves it and my kale hating self will be making this over and over again. I used baby kale for quicker prep. I can’t think of a single thing about this soup that isn’t’s even beautiful to look at.

  • Sharon Lamb

    2020-11-10 13:22:49

    Best soup ever! Thank you!

  • Rebecca

    2020-11-01 08:14:02

    Even my non-keto husband loved this soup. The only negative thing he had to say was, “It (the recipe) didn’t make a lot of soup.” which translates to it didn’t make enough for lots of big bowls of soup. 😄😁😆 Yes he liked it that much and that means I won’t be freezing any of this. LOL
