It snowed on Saturday. SNOWED. It was the perfect day for a soup in the Instant Pot. I had a taste for Olive Garden’s Zuppa Toscana and decided to make my own copy cat recipe in the Instant Pot.

IT WAS SO GOOD.

And so easy to make. So after having all of the ingredients that I needed delivered via Insta Cart (technology is glorious), I made this perfect soup just in time for lunch.

Why I made a Low Carb Zuppa Toscano

I’m trying to get my body together so yes, I’m low carb. BUT NOT KETO. I tried Keto before and it didn’t work for me because I need some carbs in my life to stay sane. So making a Low Carb Zuppa Toscana was as simple as taking out the potatoes and substituting cauliflower rice to make it more hearty and filling. But it is also keto-friendly if you are following that diet.

I’ve always made this soup in a big stockpot on the stove where it simmered all day. But since I got my Ninja Foodi, I’ve been making everything I can in it. So it was a no brainer to make this soup with the Instant pot! This recipe literally took me 30 minutes from start to finish in the Instant Pot. Soooo….here is the recipe.
