“Soups are for Winter and fall”. Well, I don’t think so, I think Soups are for all year round.
This stuffed pepper soup tastes just like your favorite stuffed pepper. For those times you are bored or just want to add some spice and fun to your life.
This soup will have its way of making you want to eat no matter how sick you are.
I remember how I hate the taste of food whenever I’m sick, but I end up eating healthily eventually after having a plate of stuffed pepper soup.
I think the spicy and flavorful hot taste is responsible for awakening your taste bud.
To top it all, it is quite on the light side for weight watchers and healthy too,
If you want to make it even lighter, you could use riced cauliflower instead of rice.
Just make a spicy and delicious soup as a side dish, or just add some more carbs and fiber to the soup as the main filling dish.
Either way, you’ll love this stuffed pepper soup.
Make a double batch for later
The soup reheats really well in the microwave so it can serve as lunch at work just fine.
It freezes very well and it tastes even better after. You can easily prep it and use it all through the week.
