Healthy Stuffed Pepper Soup

Healthy Stuffed Pepper Soup 190 calories and 5 weight watchers points plus

I needed this soup in my life. Seriously, it’s like the perfect weight loss soup. It’s delicious, comforting, low calorie, high protein, and filled with nutrition. Even if weight loss is not the goal I guarantee your body will thank you for this soup.

The inspiration for this stuffed pepper soup recipe came from what most of my recipes are created from…leftovers. Last week, I chopped up a bunch of bell peppers for snacks and did not get a chance to eat all of them. I didn’t want to waste food so I started to do some Pinterest recipe research. I came across this stuffed pepper soup by Taste of Home and decided to give it a shot.

I gave it a healthier twist by using lean ground turkey and played with the spices a bit. It turned out amazing. I couldn’t stop tasting it.

MY OTHER RECIPES

Here’s a step by step.

In a little olive oil, I browned the turkey until it was no longer pink.

Then I added the peppers, Worcestershire sauce, spices, and cooked until the peppers were softened a bit.

Next I added the beef stock, tomato sauce, and diced tomatoes.

I gave it a couple stirs, brought it to a boil, and then let it simmer for about 25 minutes – 30 minutes. I stirred in the rice and let it cook for about 10 minutes or until the rice was fully cooked. I used 1/4 cup of dry brown minute rice. But if you have cooked rice available you can stir in 1 – 1 1/2 cups of cooked rice or ladle the soup over rice.

I used my Le Creuset 5 1/1 quart dutch oven for this recipe. This is a great pot for soups, chills, and sauces. If you are looking for that one special cooking essential, this is it. Here is the one I have but in cherry color.

This soup is delicious. Honestly, I didn’t know what to expect using bell peppers in a soup recipe. But I loved it. I froze the leftovers in 16-ounce mason jar containers for easy lunches and dinners.

  1. this looks great.. do you think it could be made in the slow cooker?

  2. This was delicious! Only thing I will do next time is add more rice. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I made this the other night and have been enjoying it all week! Very easy to prepare and a short list of ingredients which is exactly how I like it. I did add more rice about another 1/4 cup and when I left it in the frudge overnight it plumped up really well. Thanks!

    I love this recipe!! Made it last night for my family and they loved it! I need to watch the fat in take on my daughter due to a genetic condition and have been looking for recipes and this was perfect. Will be making it more often. To cut the fat down, I sprayed my pan with Pam instead of olive oil.

  5. This was delicious!! I may add more rice next time, although I suppose that increases the WW point value.

  6. I had a slew of green peppers frozen from my CSA and wanted to use them up. This was really good. I had to substitute roasted red pepper flavor turkey sausage ( 12oz and sliced) , used more peppers, otherwise followed to a T. A keeper for sure!

  7. For Patrina, I never use any oil or spray when I cook ground turkey, or beef. I use a medium to low heat and I don’t have a problem with it sticking to the pan. Just something you might try. And I usually use a heavy stainless steel skillet. If you try this, please let me know if it worked for you. God Bless.

  8. Great recipe for a non cooking guy trying to impress wife and kids. Easy and awesome thank you!

  9. 16 WW points! Is that correct? Yikes. I only have 30 points for an entire day!
