This stuff is GOOD! Tastes just like a stuffed pepper, but in soup form! Stuffed peppers are SO yummy! The following pin got me to thinking about how yummy those guys are!
I decided that I wanted the taste of stuffed peppers, but I was being lazy, so I didn’t want to put in the work to get them! Enter slow cooker…oh my gosh, this thing has come to my lazy rescue so many times.
I put together some ingredients that would make for a healthy stuffed pepper recipe, and I added a bit of chicken broth. Threw it all in the slow cooker, and wa-lah! Deliciousness achieved with WAY less work!
STUFFED PEPPER SOUP
- 1 lb. ground turkey
- 1 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1 cup chopped red onion
- 1 large green pepper, cored and chopped
- 2 red peppers, cored and chopped
- 5 large tomatoes, chopped
- 1 cup cooked brown rice
- 3 cups chicken broth
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp. dried basil
- 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
- sea salt, to taste
- cheese of choice for topping (optional) – I didn’t use any, but I think it would be yummy with some!
1.) Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan. Add the onion and ground turkey. Cook until the turkey is cooked through.
2.) Place the mixture in the bottom of the slow cooker.
3.) Add the peppers, tomatoes, rice, chicken broth, garlic powder, oregano, and basil.
4.) Cook on low for 7 hours.
5.) Use a ladle to scoop into bowls. Season with sea salt, and top with cheese if desired.
