I’m sitting in my office at home looking out the window at freshly fallen snow in our backyard. We had a crazy snowstorm (it gets a bit crazy in Portland when we have significant snow) yesterday, and another 3-5 inches is expected for later this afternoon. This is a great day for Olive Garden Toscana Soup!

My husband and I have both been fighting pesky head colds for several days now, so we decided a big pot of soup was just the ticket for us to have around for 1) the snowstorm, and 2) leftovers, so I wouldn’t have to cook too much while sick. It was a really good idea (we occasionally have good ideas!).

Where I Found The Recipe For Olive Garden Toscana Soup

Once we settled on what KIND of soup it was easy: A big pot of Toscana Soup, a copycat version of the popular soup found at Olive Garden restaurants nationwide. It is also known as Zuppa Toscana! I dug out my trusty cookbook called “Top Secret Restaurant Recipes”, by Todd Wilbur, and then got busy in the kitchen.

I can’t count how many times I have made this recipe over the years…it’s always soooo tasty and filling (and ridiculously easy to make, too!). The blended flavors of Italian sausage, potatoes and kale (which I conveniently grow in our garden) are wonderful in a light, creamy broth. Seriously good soup! Perfect way to warm up on a cold, snowy day…or any time you want a great bowl of soup!

How To Make Olive Garden Toscana Soup

Place Italian sausage links into a large skillet. Pan-sear the sausage links on medium heat until browned, and cooked through. This will take between 10 and 15 minutes to fully cook the sausages.

Italian sausage links are pan-seared in skillet.

Slice the cooked Italian sausage links on the diagonal into bite-sized pieces.

The cooked Italian sausage links are cut in thin slices.

Slice the cleaned, unpeeled potatoes into thin slices, and then quarter them. The potato slices will cook more evenly if they are all cut about the same size.

Unpeeled russet potatoes are cut into thin slices, then cut into quarters.

Add More Ingredients To The Toscana Soup

The potato slices now “walk the plank” into the Toscana soup base that is simmering in a large soup pot.

Into the soup pot goes the kale…lots of fresh chopped kale! The Olive Garden Toscana Soup is almost ready to eat!

Chopped kale is added to the soup in pan.

Time To EAT!

Add the cooked and sliced Italian sausage to the soup, and heat the soup, until very hot and ready to serve! Ladle the hot Toscana Soup into serving bowls, serve with some good Italian bread on the side, and enjoy!

The sliced, cooked Italian sausage pieces are added to the pot of Olive Garden Toscana Soup.

Hope you will give this Olive Garden Toscana Soup a try and will discover (if you haven’t already), how delicious it really is! It’s also pretty easy to make a big pot of this soup to enjoy! Sure do hope you like it!

Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Nothing is as comforting as a hot bowl of soup on a cool day. This delicious, creamy tomato basil soup will really hit the spot, and it’s simple to make!Nothing is as comforting as a hot bowl of soup on a cool day. This delicious, creamy tomato basil soup will really hit the spot, and it's simple to make!

Writing this post made me laugh…my entire life I have despised (I know, harsh words!) tomato soup. Really, really despised it. However, I am married to a guy who loves it. Go figure! But the truth is… I have come to love the taste of this Creamy Tomato Basil Soup!

Scroll Down For A Printable Recipe Card At The Bottom Of The Page

Tomato Soup Was NOT On The List Of Foods I Enjoyed… Originally!

Years ago I worked at a school where occasionally they would serve the students and staff grilled cheese sandwiches with a small cup of tomato soup.  Word on the street was the soup was good with a grilled cheese sandwich on the side, but I could never even bring myself to try the soup.

I grew up watching that gelatinous blob of tomato soup come out of canned tomato soup when my Dad would have it for lunch. No Thanks! I had such an “ugh” factor going on.

Then I married a guy who LOVES tomato soup, so through the years I would occasionally buy him a can of the stuff to make him happy. He sometimes even buys a carton of freshly made tomato basil soup from the grocery store deli to “heat and eat”.

Why I Ended Up LIKING Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Fast this story forward to this past summer –  our little garden was overflowing with fresh basil. I decided to combine my home-grown basil with my deep love of cooking and my love for that “tomato-soup-lovin’ husband of mine”. 

 I searched online to find a homemade tomato basil soup recipe he could enjoy.  This recipe for creamy tomato basil soup is the one I tried, and guess what? I had a tiny cup of it and it was absolutely delicious…who knew? Wait… now I like this soup? I was totally surprised!

Now I really enjoy this yummy tomato basil soup! That has to be some kind of miracle! Maybe my taste buds have changed as I’ve gotten older. Perhaps it is the fact that it didn’t come sliding (in one gelatinous blob) out of a little red and white labeled can?
 

How To Make Homemade Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

In a medium sized pan, sauté onions and garlic in butter over medium heat until they are fairly clear (about 4-5 minutes).  Don’t let the garlic burn!

Add the canned tomatoes (including juice) and the chicken stock to the saucepan. Bring the tomato mixture to a full boil.  Reduce the heat, and let it simmer, uncovered for 10 minutes.  Once the tomato mixture has cooked for 10 minutes, remove pan from heat.

 
Cooking the tomato soup before pureeing the tomatoes.
 
Use an immersion blender to puree. Be careful… the soup is HOT! NOTE: If you don’t have an immersion blender, no problem! Carefully transfer the “hot” tomato mixture to a blender or a food processor and puree. You may need to do this in batches.

Add The Fresh Basil

Once the tomato mixture has been pureed, add in the fresh basil and pulse (or blend) a few more times to incorporate the basil into the soup.
 
Fresh, chopped basil is added to tomato soup, then blended in.
 
If you used a blender, return the hot soup carefully to the saucepan. Whisk in the heavy whipping cream, until blended.
 
Whipping cream is added to creamy tomato basil soup.
 
Season with salt and pepper, to taste.  Heat on low until the creamy tomato basil soup is fully heated through. Do NOT let the soup boil!

Serve This Delicious Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Ladle the hot soup into cups or bowls. Garnish each portion with croutons and fresh basil leaves, if desired. ENJOY!

It’s Easy To Make Mom’s Old-Fashioned Chili Vegetarian!

The awesome part is that if you simply omit the meat Mom’s old-fashioned chili can be a totally vegetarian meal. I know this amazing tidbit because I’ve tried it (we have two vegetarians and a vegan in our family) and they loved this hearty chili, too.

So…grab the ingredients, a wooden spoon, knife, cutting board, a big stockpot (or crock pot) and make a big pot of Mom’s old-fashioned chili.  After tasting it, get ready to say “Thank You, JB’s Mom!!!!!!”

I make Mom’s old-fashioned chili year-round, but it is an especially good comforting and filling dish when it is COLD outside. I’ve even left the meat out of this recipe to make a completely vegetarian chili when family members (who are vegetarian or vegan) come over for dinner. It tastes wonderful, even without the meat!

It’s EASY To Make Mom’s Old-Fashioned Chili

Making Mom’s old-fashioned chili couldn’t be any easier!  Ground beef, onions and green peppers are cooked until meat is cooked through. The meat, onions and peppers are then added to a large soup pot on the stove (or a crock pot) for cooking.

The rest of the ingredients are stirred into the pot, and cooked for about 1½ hours on the stove top, or for 5-6 hours in the slow cooker on low heat.  Once done, Mom’s old-fashioned chili is ladled into bowls, garnished with sour cream, cheese and cilantro, then served!
