Tuscan Soup with Kale and Sausage Recipe:

It’s no secret. I love soup. Healthy soup like Low Calorie Cabbage, fast soup like Instant Pot Potato Soup, hearty soup like Hamburger Vegetable Soup, I love them all.

My absolute favorite soup recipe is Tuscan White Bean Soup (it’s also the all time favorite of our followers).  I love this soup so much that I set out to make it even better and healthier.  Kale is the secret ingredient in this updated version. The health benefits of kale include being high in fiber, antioxidants and several vitamins.  And really, the kale doesn’t change the overall flavor profile too much. It’s still creamy deliciousness.

  1. Very tasty! I used canned coconut milk to make it dairy free. The whole family loved it. We also added red pepper flakes for the adults.
