    Zuppa Toscana

    Primal Fuel
    Zuppa Toscana

    Loosely based on the Olive Garden’s Zuppa Toscana. I have never had it but there are recipes online. Hits the spot on cold rainy nights. And obnoxiously healthy! (I am not going to give amounts for ingredients. Add however much to want to eat.) The recipe has heavy cream. If you don’t do dairy, I would suggest pureeing the cauliflower for creaminess. I would not use coconut milk. But almond might work.

    Ingredients

    * Olive oil
    * Ground turkey (I used 7% fat but use what you like.)
    * Leeks (Slice and wash.)
    * Garlic (Minced.)
    * Red pepper flakes
    * Thyme
    * Oregano
    * Mushrooms (Wiped and sliced.)
    * Chicken broth (Maybe 1/4 cup.)
    * Kale (Washed. Leaves torn off stems. Discard stems.)
    * Cauliflower (Cut into small florets. Or run through food processor if you like.)
    * Heavy cream
    * Parmesan cheese

    Directions

    1. Saute ground turkey, in olive oil if necessary.
    2. Add olive oil and the next six ingredients. Saute.
    3. In soup pot, bring broth to a boil.
    4. Add kale, lower heat some.
    5. Cook kale. Not too much.
    6. Toss in the meat etc. and stir.
    7. Add heavy cream.
    8. Heat gently until warm through.
    9. Serve with a sprinkle of parmesan chees if you like.

    Thanks for posting.

    I have made this in the past - and the addition of a little fennel seed goes a long way toward making this taste similar to theirs. (For me, anyway!)

    This is such a good soup - I liked your idea for a dairy sub too.

    Thanks. I'll try the fennel (although I am not really trying to duplicate theirs.)
