HOW TO MAKE ITALIAN VEGETABLE STEW WITH SAUSAGE
With fall approaching you think of things like.. pumpkins, fall leaves, warm smells and STEW!
This is a great way to finally clean out those leftover veggies in your freezer or pantry as we kick start this new season!
Let's get started!
In a large heavy pot with a tight fitting lid add in Italian Sausage, garlic, onion and celery.
Cook over medium heat until sausage is cooked through and onion and celery are soft. This should take about 5 - 8 minutes.
Add in tomatoes, cauliflower rice, frozen spinach, beef broth, bullion cubes, tomato sauce and tomato paste.
Stir well and bring to a simmer.
Reduce heat to low, place lid on top and let the keto vegetable soup simmer for 20 minutes.
Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve in individual bowls and top with a drizzle of olive oil. This step is totally optional but I think it really makes the soup out of this world!
Enjoy this hearty, full of flavor, Italian Vegetable Stew!

Made this for dinner tonight. Hubby and I both loved it! So much flavor! Will definitely make again.
Great recipe Jennifer! My husband loved it as well. We just topped it with Parmesan cheese! Delish!
What should I add if I left it too long and it isn't brothy
Add more broth

Another winner! Slight tweaks. Couldn't find frozen spinach at Fresh Thyme store so got the triple washed spinach in the salad section. Forgot to chop it but it was good anyway after it is simmered down. Also, added a pinch of red pepper flakes while it simmered. Lastly, I tossed some finely grated Parmesan cheese (the kind that comes in a bag). This stuff is wonderful. The cheese made it like an Italian version of "french onion soup".
Thanks again for all the great recipes
Delicious!!! This will be a go to recipe for me!!

This so tasty. I used a package of Mild Italian Sausage from Aldi's that was 19 oz or 1 and 1/5 pound so I adjusted the measurement in Carb Manager, also I used 2 boxes of spinach so that became 2 and 1/2 cups of chopped frozen spinach. I also added an additional cup of beef broth to help thin out my spinach a bit :). With is still calculating 8 servings, Carb Manager calculated 1 serving to be 8g Carb, 299 Kcal. Thank you, Jennifer, this recipe is delicious.

Also, I plan to sub Miracle Rice for the cauliflower rice when I make this. I'm a huge fan of Miracle Rice and Miracle Noodles!
Robin Abernethy says
I never did reply, but I did make this with Miracle Rice and then took some over to my Italian next door neighbors. Everyone LOVED it with the Miracle Rice (instead of cauliflower rice). They fought over who got to eat the last of it! Thanks for a wonderful recipe!
