Today’s Topic #10: Your Favorite Recipe
I have so many favorite recipes but one that I’ve been making a lot lately has been Stuffed Pepper Soup. It’s healthy, it’s easy, it’s filling, it’s fast, and it’s absolutely delicious!
Stuffed Pepper Soup
3 cups cooked jasmine (or white) rice
500g minced beef
1 green pepper, diced
1 red pepper, diced
1 medium brown onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
2 cans (400g each) cans diced tomatoes
1 3/4 cups tomato sauce
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 tsp dried marjoram
salt and fresh pepper to taste
a few tbsp olive oil
(I like to add a bit of chilli powder to mine to spice it up.)
(I also like to get diced tomatoes that are seasoned with garlic or an Italian flavor.)
In a large pot, cook onions on medium heat with a bit of olive oil.
Add meat and cook until the meat is browned.
Add peppers and cook for about 5 minutes on low heat.
Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, chicken broth, marjoram, and any salt and pepper.
Cover and simmer on low heat for 30 minutes.
Cook rice separately while this cooks.
Serve soup topped with rice.
