Love Olive Garden’s  Zuppa Toscana?

It’s so simple and quick to make at home! If you’re eating low carb/Keto and want to enjoy this classic Olive Garden soup, try swapping out the potatoes for cauliflower. Trust me, this soup is so flavorful, you won’t even miss them!

Low Carb Zuppa Toscana (Olive Garden Copycat Recipe)

This popular sausage and potato soup from the Olive Garden is very easy to re-create at home.

Serves: 4-6


  • 1 lb Italian sausage (I used Mild)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 16 oz. chicken broth
  • 1 quart water
  • 1 teaspoon bouillon (if desired for extra flavor)
  • 3 cups kale or Swiss chard, chopped
  • 1 cup heavy cream


  • Step 1:

    In a soup pot on the stove, crumble and brown sausage over medium-high heat.

  • Step 2:

    Add onion and garlic and cook until translucent in color. Season with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.

  • Step 3:

    Reduce heat to medium and add cauliflower florets, broth, and water. Stir and add Bouillon, if desired.

  • Step 4:

    Cook on medium heat until cauliflower is tender, about 15-20 minutes.

  • Step 5:

    Reduce heat to low and sprinkle in chopped kale. Pour in cream and stir well. Serve hot.

Additional Notes

Recipe adapted from

Tip: If you wanted to make this in your slow cooker, brown the meat with onions and garlic, then place inside the slow cooker along with the broth and cauliflower. Cover and cook on HIGH for 4 hours or LOW for 6-8 hours. Stir in kale and cream at the end. Serve hot.

This soup is AMAZING!

It’s my favorite dish at Olive Garden, and this version tastes so similar, maybe even better! My husband said he liked the cauliflower even more than potatoes, and my kids actually ate the cauliflower without complaining! The leftovers are really great as well.

We really LOVED this easy low carb meal idea!

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account.

To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list.
