Keto Tuscan sausage soup is a creamy spicy sausage soup recipe with plenty of spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, and spice for an easy and satisfying low-carb soup. Ground pork is one of my go-to proteins for a fast meal. Soups are a regular meal in the winter especially since soup is quick to make on the stove, or it can cook all day in the crock pot. I have plenty of low-carb soups but this low-carb Tuscan sausage soup with spinach and sun-dried tomatoes is my new favorite.
This Tuscan soup recipe is also versatile and you can make it with diced chicken or even smoked sausage. Since so many of my low-carb soup recipes have Mexican flavor influences like my low-carb chile poblano soup, I decided I need to create an Italian version. If you are looking for a new low carb soup recipe, this soup will definitely need to go on your list of easy keto soup recipes to try.

- Use frozen chopped spinach that comes in the cardboard box and the self-containing steam package. Drain the excess liquid by squeezing it out the slit made to steam the spinach.
