Stuffed Pepper Soup Recipe

I’m a lazy cook. I like easy recipes that don’t require too much effort to make. That doesn’t mean I will sacrifice taste for convenience. I want the best of both worlds. This Stuffed Pepper Soup has everything I love and more. Easy. Tasty. Filling.

If you’re a big fan of the classic Stuffed Peppers recipe, you MUST try the soup version. It has all the delicious flavours of Stuffed Peppers without all the fuss. You can whip it up quickly for lunch or dinner in ONE pot.

I don’t know about you, but I’m loving comfort food recipes right now. A piping hot bowl of Stuffed Pepper Soup is absolute perfection during the cold winter months. It’s delicious served with a buttered crusty roll. Perfect for dipping!

I chose ingredients that you’d typically find in Stuffed Peppers. Ground beef, rice, onions, green peppers (of course!) in a tomato-based beef broth. For spices, I added Litehouse® Freeze Dried Garlic, Litehouse® Freeze Dried Basil, Oregano, salt and pepper. At the end of the cooking time, I added some shredded cheddar cheese. My mouth is watering just thinking about how good this soup was!

I recommend using converted rice and not instant rice. The converted rice will cook in the soup to a nice, tender consistency. Instant rice might be too mushy if you added it too soon during the cooking process.

If you want to use instant rice, cook it first separately and then add it at the end of the cooking process to the soup.

I also shared a container of this soup with my fiancé’s parents. They like being testers for my recipes. They gave me a rave review and said they LOVED the soup.

I’m going to make another batch soon for the freezer. Yes, it’s a freezer-friendly recipe, too! I’m sure it will save me on busy nights when I don’t feel like cooking.

I hope all you Stuffed Peppers fans will give this soup version a try. I’m sure you will love it, too!
