Low Carb Soup

Soup season is on the horizon, so prep and get ready for the chilly weather. I have loads of soups and stews that I keep in constant rotation. This is very similar to the copycat Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana Soup, but a lighter version.

Can I Freeze Zuppa Toscana

Yes, you can freeze Zuppa Toscana. This is a freezer-friendly recipe. So if you don't plan to eat the whole batch of soup, simply let it cool down, and then freeze. I generally freeze my Toscana in a freezer friendly bag. I find it works great and uses minimal space in the freezer. Just freeze it laying flat, so that once frozen, it can stand on the side.

Can I Use Bone Broth Instead Of Regular Chicken Stock for Toscana Soup 

Yes, feel free to use bone broth. You can buy or make your own chicken bone broth to use. It will add more nutrients and vitamins into the soup. You can also have the alternative to vegetable stock as well. Beef broth can work in a pinch but it will adjust the flavor a lot more. 

How Long Does Zuppa Toscana Last in the Fridge 

You will find the standard to most dishes is up to three days stored in the fridge. Anything after that you can run the of it going bad. Of course, you have the option to freeze the soup for up to three months if you don't plan to use it all right away. This helps to reduce waste. The longest I would let low carb Zuppa Toscana soup set is four days.

Is Zuppa Toscana Good For Meal Prepping 

I love using my Zuppa Toscana Soup recipe to meal prep for part of the week. We eat it for dinner one night, and then I grab containers and spoon it into them and toss in the fridge. Then your child, spouse, or yourself can just warm up the container and enjoy. You can also use a thermos and warm it up and send with your child for lunch while at school. It is a great low carb soup recipe the whole family can enjoy. 

What to Serve With Zuppa 

You can eat this dish as a meal in one, or reach for your favorite sides. A crisp green salad with a light vinegarette dressing is good. Or reach for keto bread or some other type of low carb bread to serve next to it for dipping.  Pair anything with your Tuscan soup recipe that sounds like a good fit!
