You won’t believe the flavor in this easy-to-make Tuscan Vegetable Soup! Who knew healthy could taste so good?! This healthy soup is gluten-free, vegetarian, clean-eating and low carb. The best part? Is it SO GOOD!
This Tuscan Vegetable Soup is gluten-free, vegetarian, clean-eating and low carb. The best part? Is it SO GOOD! Celebrate!! We’ve had some lovely rainy days here in Los Angeles lately! We definitely need it, so it’s been really nice (although it’s messing with my work flow since I want to sit with a book in my hands on those rainy days and not work! Lol!)
When it rains, I crave something warm and comforting. Tuscan Vegetable Soup is always one of my favorite things to make that will warm you up but is actually healthy too!
There are tons of nutrients packed inside this italian-style recipe. Six vegetable varieties – plus cannellini beans – makes it an excellent source of fiber, vitamins A and C, and a good source of protein and minerals. All of this for only 150 calories per serving!!
I bet you’re reading this and thinking, “yeah, but does it taste good?”. It’s hard to believe that all those vegetables and really, not many steps/ingredients can yield an incredibly tasty soup that you will make and want to make again and again. But, it’s true.
This is a recipe you will want in your back pocket for any rainy day, or any day you want a healthy meal that will satisfy and taste delicious. Plus did I mention it’s gluten-free, vegetarian, clean-eating and low carb?! Winner dinner! Or lunch…

Looks yummy! We make soups at least once a week. Pinned for later.
About how long does this take to cook?
It depends on how quickly your veggies soften, etc but about 25 minutes!
Oh, my heavens!! This is so delicious!! I made it using my own veggie broth and stuck to the recipe for the rest. My Thyme and Sage are homegrown. Awesome flavor and then adding the Parmesan cheese was a delightful finishing touch. I highly recommend this recipe and will be making it again and again.
This soup is sooo delicious. I make it all the time. A wonderful flavor. I don’t get tired of it. My husband doesn’t eat it because he’s not a healthy eater. Therefore it lasts me all week. If I want to cheat, I fix a grilled cheese to go with it. Yummy! Thanks for the recipe.
I am SO happy you like it!! And there’s nothing better than a grilled cheese with a warm bowl of soup! Love it! Thanks for the comment!
Replaced the zucchini with green beans and spinach with cabbage, since that’s what I had on hand. It was delicious! Will be making this again and again.
I’m so glad you liked it!!
We make this every summer with fresh zucchini and summer squash from the garden and fresh herbs. Simple and delicious.
This soup is so delicious! My husband and I are both avid meat eaters who have been trying to incorporate more meat-free days into our meal plans. This definitely does the trick- it’s filling and doesn’t leave us wanting for more!
This is just what I have been looking for! Awesome!!!! We are making it again! Thanks bunches!!!
