Zuppa Toscana Soup
Easy homemade version of Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana soup.
- 6-8 cups homemade chicken broth
- 1 lb italian sausage removed from casings
- 2 baking potatoes scrubbed and sliced 1/4 inch thick
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- salt & pepper to taste
- 1 bunch fresh kale
- 1/4 cup half & half
Press SAUTE and add the crumbled Italian sausage and brown, about 5-7 minutes.
Add the potatoes, spices and chicken broth.
Secure the lid of the IP and ensure the valve is set to SEALING.
Press MANUAL and adjust the time to 5 minutes on HIGH pressure.
Meanwhile, prepare the kale by cutting away the tough core and stem. Slice the leafy greens into bite size or smaller piece and place in a bowl.
Naturally release your Instant Pot and carefully open to stir in the kale and half & half. (The heat of the soup will cook the kale without turning it brown.)
Serve with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese if desired.
