Italian Sausage Low Carb Soup Recipe

Low carb , keto friendly Italian Sausage soup. So flavorful and filling! #italiansausage #keto #lowcarb

 

Some people might say this Italian Sausage Low Carb Soup is similar to the super famous Olive Garden Zuppa Tuscana. I have never had that soup, so I’m not sure! It is amazing though and a total crowd pleaser!

You can make this Italian Sausage Low Carb soup in your slow cooker or your Instant Pot. We love our Instant Pot!

Italian Sausage Low Carb Soup

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb Italian Sausage (purchase crumbled or just remove from casing)
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon Italian Seasoning
  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • 1 bag frozen cauliflower (or cut up small chunks of fresh cauliflower)
  • 1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 Bag Baby Spinach (or Kale)
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese (grated)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 6 slices bacon
  • Red Pepper flakes (optional…you might just leave these out for everyone to individually add to their bowls)

 

Slow Cooker Directions:

  1. Cut up your bacon into small pieces and cook in a large pan. Remove from pan when crispy, saving bacon grease. Set aside to top your soup later.
  2. In the same pan, brown and crumble your sausage. Add your onions and garlic and cook through until meat is fully browned and onions are translucent.
  3. Add italian seasoning and salt & pepper to taste
  4. Add meat mixture, cauliflower and 8 cups chicken broth to your slow cooker
  5. Slow Cook for 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low.
  6. About 30 minutes before you plan to serve, you’ll add your cream, Parmesan and spinach or kale. Whether your pot was on high/low, turn it up to high for the last 30 minutes.
  7. Enjoy topped with bacon and red pepper flakes if your heart desires!

 

Instant Pot Adjustments:

  1. Saute your bacon pieces while your pot is on the “saute” feature
  2. Remove your bacon pieces and set them aside for toppings. Do not drain grease.
  3. Brown and crumble your sausage. Add your onions and garlic and cook through until meat is fully browned and onions are translucent.
  4. Add italian seasoning and salt & pepper to taste
  5. Add 8 cups chicken broth to your Instant Pot
  6. Seal your Instant Pot and press “Soup”!
  7. Meanwhile, go ahead and steam your cauliflower separately.
  8. Allow your Instanat Pot to Natural Release at least 10 minutes.
  9. Add your steamed cauliflower, cream, parmesan and spinach or kale and stir
  10. At this point you can either serve, or switch on the saute feature to let it thicken a bit.
  11. Enjoy topped with bacon and red pepper flakes if your heart desires!

    1. Good catch! I will update the post. I presteam it and add it after the soup is finished pressure cooking. otherwise it will just turn to mush.

  1. My instant pot does not have a “soup” setting. I have: pressure cook, sauté, slow cook, steam, dehydrate, sous vide, broil, bake, roast and air fry…suggestions?
