It’s a chilly day here in NC! Definitely a good day for a delicious healthy bowl of comfort soup.
Today I decided to make stuffed pepper soup. My husband isn’t a fan of stuffed peppers so it’s something I can only make when I’m cooking for other people. So I decided to try the soup version a few years ago and it totally worked. It’s got all the flavors there to satisfy my craving and he doesn’t mind it!
This is my healthier version. I use ground turkey. It’s also delicious with ground beef. I swap them out where I can get away with it. To me the beef consommé adds plenty of rich flavor without needing to use beef!
First chop up your pepper and onion. Start browning them in a little olive oil, salt, pepper, oregano and red pepper flakes.
Add in the beef consommé, a pinch of sugar, a cup of water and about 1/2 a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar.
This is also a good time to do a taste test. If you think it needs something more add in a beef bullion cube.
You can also get your rice ready. You’ll need a cup of cooked rice. Add it just before serving!
