Stuffed peppers is always a good dinner when you want something both filling and health-conscious, and now you can enjoy it in a comforting soup form. Comfort food that’s healthy is really the best of both worlds!

There’s tons of protein in this soup to help keep you full and plenty of bell peppers to get your veggie fix. This soup is a great meal all by itself, as it’s so well-rounded!

What other kinds of ground meat can I use?

You can use ground beef, turkey, chicken, or even a plant based alternative!

How can I make vegetarian stuffed pepper soup?

Find a plant based sausage and ground “meat” that you like. Use those ingredients in place of the ground chuck and pork sausage. Also, replace the chicken stock with vegetable stock.

What is the best way to freeze this soup?

When the soup is completely cooled to room temp, place it into an air tight food storage container. In the freezer, it’ll stay fresh for up to 3 months.

Serving Suggestions

This soup is a meal all on it’s own! However, there are a few things that I do enjoy serving on the side from time to time. Besides a dinner roll, you could also try these tasty bread sides:

No matter what, you’ve got to remember the toppings! A sprinkling of fresh cilantro on top of this soup makes it even better.

  • If you like orange bell peppers, you can chop one up and toss it into the mix as well, or substitute one of the other peppers with it.
  • This soup will stay fresh in the fridge for about 3-4 days if kept in an airtight container, and it’s best when reheated in a pot on the stove top.
  • Be careful about how much salt you sprinkle in, as the bouillan cubes and chicken stock already have sodium.
