Zuppa Toscana does that sound so Italian? Well it is an Italian for Tuscan Soup but I doubt this recipes origin is from Tuscany because I haven’t heard of this before or even encounter this type of soup when I was in Italy, I just heard this from the Olive Garden and that’s about it.


  • 500 g Italian style sausages, casing removed
  • 3 pcs large floury potatoes, cubed (roughly 500g)
  • 3 pcs streaky bacon, chopped
  • 5 cups good chicken stock
  • 5 cups water
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1 large white onion, diced
  • red peppers, crushed (amount according to your liking)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • small bunch of kale, ribbed and roughly chopped
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • butter


  1. In a soup pot add a bit of butter then cook Italian sausage together with the crushed red peppers. Mash sausages and mix for 3-4 minutes.
  2. Add the bacon, garlic and onions and cook in low heat until onions are soft and light brown.
  3. Pour chicken stock and water, bring it to a boil then add potatoes, cook in low heat for 25 minutes.
