With the snow coming down outside it’s time for a hearty recipe that warms you up from the inside out. In my opinion the best foods to eat when the temperature drops below freezing are soups! This recipe combines spinach and sausage in an Italian inspired recipe that is filling and delicious. This recipe is adapted from LINDA’S LOW CARB MENUS & RECIPES.
Keto Tuscano Soup
- 1 lb Italian Sausage
- 1 Small White Onion, Diced (2.5 Oz)
- 2 Cloves Garlic, Minced
- 3 Cups Chicken Broth
- 10 Oz Frozen Chopped Spinach, Thawed
- 1/2 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
- Morton Lite Salt and Pepper to taste
- Grated Parmesan Cheese
Remove the sausage from its casings, if necessary. We use the kind of sausage that comes in a single package like Jimmy Dean. Brown the sausage in a 4-Quart Soup Pot with Lid along with the onion and garlic. You can drain fat if you desire but I feel it adds flavor and keeps the fat content of this soup higher. Add the broth and drained spinach and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer about 30 minutes. Add the cream and simmer a few minutes until the cream is heated. Season to taste. Sprinkle a little parmesan cheese over each serving.
This soup is delicious as a meal or as a side dish. The calorie content is a bit higher than your traditional canned soups so keep that in mind as you track your macros. Enjoy!
