Low-Carb Tuscan Soup with Sausage and Riced Cauliflower

In this version, we eliminated the flour that was in the original recipe, which is a big no-no for low carb. We also made a couple other simple substitutions.

We swapped the evaporated milk for heavy whipping cream. Riced cauliflower is our substitution for the white beans. Not familiar with riced cauliflower? You can find this in the freezer section of the grocery store. We use the steamer bags that you cook in the microwave. This Low-Carb Tuscan Soup is sure to satisfy your soup craving.

If your family likes different seasonings, do not be afraid to taste the soup before serving and add your own spin to the soup. That’s one of the great things about what we call “base” recipes – with just a few of your own additions, you can make them your own!
