The Joy of Soup: Kosher Olive Garden Zuppa Tuscana

A few weeks ago I made the kosher version of Olive Garden’s Zuppa Tuscana. I love making soup in the crock pot now! It took about seven hours and it was easy.


1 lb. Kosher sausage
large onion, chopped
cloves garlic, minced
kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
6 c. low-sodium chicken broth
large russet potatoes, diced
Swiss chard or kale
3/4 c. heavy cream
1/4 freshly grated Parmesan, for serving


  1. In a large pot over medium heat, cook sausage, breaking up with the back of a wooden spoon, until browned and no longer pink, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a plate to drain.
  2. Add all ingredients to the crock pot and cook on low for 7 hours.
  3. Stir in Swiss Chard or kale in the last 20 minutes of cooking in the crock pot. Add cream at this point too.
  4. Season with pepper, garnish with Parm, and serve.

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    Mrs. Shady is always on the lookout for a good soup recipe and I enjoy the soups she prepares. I will show here this recipe for Kosher Olive Garden Zuppa Tuscana. Mrs. S. likes to make foods that are hot and spicy and therefore makes liberal use of garlic, onion and black pepper in her cooking.She serves tons of kale throughout the year. Your crock pot soup looks delicious!

    Happy Thankful Thursday, dear friend JM!
