Savory Stuffed Pepper Soup (Whole30,Keto)

October 4, 2019 | Author: Ashley McCrary

Wouldn’t you agree that soup season is the most magical time of the year. Soup not only is super easy to make, but it’s also cozy and comforting to the soul. This Stuffed Pepper Soup is full of flavor and is perfect to fill a empty tummy. It is Whole30, Keto, Paleo complaint, along with being dairy and gluten free.

Stuffed Pepper Soup

Creating soup recipes that are filling and healthy is one of my main goals. I don’t like my soup to be all broth, so I love filling it with a ton of veggies and meat. This soup is so easy and can be whipped up on the stove in less than 30 minutes or put in the crock pot to cook all day.

Stuffed Pepper Soup

Stuffed peppers is always one of our go-to dinners all year around, so I just took those same ingredients and turned it into a yummy soup. The main base of this soup is ground beef and sausage along with green peppers, beef broth, green peppers, onions and spices.

Not only is this a great dish for football Sunday or tailgating, but you can take it up a notch by pouring it over a sweet potato. It will for sure fill up all the men in your life and they will be running back for seconds.

Can you freeze this stuffed pepper soup?

Yes! Add this soup to a freezer proof container and freeze up to 3 months. Simply thaw and heat up on the stove top or microwave and serve. I love making 2 big batches and using it as a meal on those days I don’t feel like cooking.

    My family loved this! I made it in the instant pot. Sautéed the meat and veggies in batches first and cooked on manual for 10 minutes, per Ashley’s suggestion. It turned out so great and it made a pretty big batch so we had leftovers, too! Thank you, Ashley!

    My whole family loved this! Even my picky 7 year old loved it! My one tip; don’t “rough chop” the green bell peppers. I would have liked them finely chopped. Otherwise, this was super flavorful & delicious!

    Love the addition of sausage to this soup! I’ve made similar recipes with just ground beef or turkey. The sausage really sets this one apart. Thank you!

  14. steph says:

    I’m a vegetarian and love to modify non-veg recipes to fit my lifestyle. I made this soup and subbed 16 oz Impossible brand ground “beef” and it was absolutely amazing! I added zucchini and used red, orange and green peppers. So rich and flavorful and comes together super quickly! Will definitely be on my regular rotation as the cold MN winter is just around the corner. Keep up the great work! XO

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      This is awesome. So happy you were able to make it vegetarian.

    Can this be made with keto marinara sauce i made instead of tomatoes tomato sauce and paste?
