Last week my sister decided she was going to make Toscana soup for dinner for our omnivorous family, but of course, I couldn’t have any of it, so I decided to make a pot of vegan Toscana soup for myself. I am super glad I did because it was incredibly delicious and surprisingly easy to make. It took less than an hour for me to make this impressive soup and I can’t wait to make it again for my friends.
I’ve never had Toscana soup before, but I know it is one of the most popular soups at Olive Garden and I figured it would be fairly simple to recreate a vegan version of it. My whole family raves about the non-vegan version that my sister always makes, so I was eager to find out how they’d like a vegan Toscana soup.
I watched my sister make her version, and then just followed the same steps using vegan ingredients and oh boy, I was super happy with how it turned out. Of course, my soup didn’t have the same look and texture as the Olive Garden copycat recipe my sister used, but it was equally delicious. To my delight, my whole family also agreed that it tasted just as good as the original, so I’d say that it was a success. If you are looking for an easy, and impressive soup to add to your recipe rotation, I’d give this a try.
