Zuppa Toscana Soup - Olive Garden style!


I got a bunch of Kale and Potatoes over the weekend at the Farmer's Market. Thanks to many like-minded folks who have enjoyed this Tuscan soup and have shared the recipes for the same. I personally adapted the recipe from All Recipes.


Ingredients -
* Italian Sausage Rolls - 1 pound [finely chopped]
* Large Onion - 1 cup [finely chopped]
* Garlic - 3 tsp [finely chopped]
* Red Chili flakes - 1 tsp 
* Pepper - 1 tsp [Add according to your interest]
* Potato - 1 + 1/2 cup [cut into small bite-size pieces, I used with skin]
* Kale leaves - 2 cup [roughly chopped, without the stem]
* Water - 5-6 cups
* Cream - 1 cup
* Salt - For taste

Cooking -
1. Heat a large pan over medium-heat on Stove and add the finely chopped Italian Sausage Rolls, Onion, Red Chili flakes, Pepper and Garlic. Saute for 10-15 mins until it changes color and the Onion becomes translucent.
2. Add the chopped Potatoes, salt for taste and water. Mix well. Cover and let it cook on medium-heat for 20-25 mins or until the Potatoes become soft to touch.
3. Add the roughly chopped Kale leaves and cook for 5-7 mins, until the Kale gets cooked.
4. Finally add the Cream and mix well. After a minute, remove the pan from the Stove and let it rest.


And if you have ever grown up on Mutton soup in India, you would enjoy this unapologetic fat-laden soup. It is good for people who are trying to gain weight in a healthy way. And my hubby enjoys this with his bite of Cheese.

Zuppa Tuscano

This is a keeper and with a good sprinkle of grated Parmesan Cheese - you cannot stop with one bowl.
