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.

  • This looks and sounds SO GOOD. I’m going to have to slip it into the food calendar next week.

  • Sounds wonderful! I am not a good cook, and I am sure my family gets sick of the same 3 or 4 things that I do manage to prepare out of my kitchen every week! This seems like something even I could do….

    • I get into a slump a lot and keep making the same couple things, too. This is a great fast and easy thing to make. Definitely try to slip it in!

  • Whoa, looks amazing. I’ve never thought to turn stuffed peppers into a SOUP. Mind blown.

    • Yeah, my mind was blown too when I first saw it. My mind was blown again when I tasted it. It’s that good.

  • I’ve been meaning to make this ever since I saw the picture on Flickr awhile back. I think I’m definitely going to make it next week, now that I have been reminded. ^_^

  • That sounds really good, perfect for a gloomy grey day!! :-)

  • THAT looks DELICIOUS!!
    I should give it a try, I love peppers so much. Especially red ones! :D

  • Hey Caity.

    I’m blogging again. Woo Hoo! Hope you had a lovely Easter. x

    That soup looks delish. I like soups that can fill you up.

  • Jason LOVES pepper and pepper sauce and pepper steak and all sorts of stuff so I am definitely going to have to try this one out! I love eating pepper stuff and chilli stuff for dinner too because it helps give my metabolism a boost for in the morning :)
