Keto Zuppa Toscana Soup


It’s full of flavorful cooked sausage, diced bacon, turnips, fresh kale, and a touch of parmesan cheese at the end.




  • Gather the ingredients
  • Prep the kale, remove stems and chop into smaller pieces. Wash and place in colander to drip dry. Chop onions, garlic. Peel and Cube the turnips.
  • Remove the sausage skins. If bacon isn’t already cut, cut bacon into small pieces.
  • Heat a Dutch oven (3.3L) or heavy bottom pot with a little bit of cooking oil.
  • Add the chopped bacon and pancetta and cook until crispy.
  • Remove the bacon to a bowl (keeping aside some crispy bacon for garnish)and cook the sausage meat until browned. If there is allot of oil, remove half.
  • Remove the sausage meat and place aside. Don’t Cover the meat, so they stay crispy.
  • Reduce the heat to medium and cook the onions to translucent, and then add the garlic.
  • Add the diced turnips and salt and pepper them. Cook for a few minutes with the onions.
  • Add the chicken broth into the the Dutch oven and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer and cook the turnips until nearly done.
  • Add the cooked meat to the broth. Keeping aside the bacon for garnish.
  • Add the heavy cream and Kale to the broth, stirring to let the Kale wilt. Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve with some crispy bacon bits.


If you want some heat to the soup add some chilli flakes or use chilli flavoured Italian sausage. I personally also like a dash of smoked paprika with the heat.
