erinariele: Tonight I channeled the olden day…


Tonight I channeled the olden days of when I worked at the Olive Garden and devoured Zuppa Toscana all day, every day! Kevin has never had it 😱(I didn’t believe him but he insists)

I adapted this recipe from Low Carb Yum (She’s amazing!) and made it slow cooker style because I love me some crock pot recipes.

*1 pound Ground Sausage, Browned
*½ small onion chopped
*2 cloves garlic, minced
*64 fluid ounces chicken broth
*1 Package radishes, thinly sliced
*10 ounces of chopped Kale
*1 cup heavy cream
*3 slices cooked bacon chopped
*1-2 teaspoons salt adjust to taste
*1 Pinch Ground Black Pepper
*½ Teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

*Add broth to the Crock Pot. Turn Crock Pot on low.
*Brown sausage with onion and garlic in small pan. Add to crock pot (Oil and all).
*Stir in radishes, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, to crock pot and stir. Cook on low for 4 hours.
*After 4 hours mix in cream, kale, and cooked bacon.
*Cook on high for 1 more hour.

This was awesome because the radishes take on the taste of the soup but have the texture of potatoes. If I didn’t make it myself I wouldn’t have believed they were radishes.

Thanks for reading and please send me your pics of your soup!!
