New favorite soup alert!!! With Whole30 Light, we’ve really had to tweak our Soup Sundays by getting a little creative with Whole30 compliant ingredients. Mostly, I miss cheese right now. However, this Stuffed Pepper Soup was so insanely good that I never even noticed my favorite soup ingredient missing. This Whole30 (and Paleo) friendly soup is stuffed with goodness — bell peppers, cauliflower rice, ground beef and more. It’s hearty and definitely hits the spot. Also, both kids ate it, although Caroline picked out every single tomato and bell pepper first, per usual…
I can’t publish a recipe that includes ground beef and not highly recommend this incredible meat mixer/masher for breaking up meats! This tool is one of the most used items in our kitchen!
Stuffed Pepper Soup
- 1 lb ground beef
- 12 oz rice cauliflower
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 3 bell peppers (green, orange & red), diced
- 5 tbsp garlic, minced
- 2 tsp Italian seasoning
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 3 15 oz cans diced fire roasted tomatoes
- 1 tbsp tomato paste
- 3 cups beef stock (make sure to use a compliant version if Whole30)
- salt to taste
- parsley, for garnish
In a large pot, saute beef for 6-8 minutes, breaking up the meat and stirring regularly.
Add onions, peppers and garlic and cook until soft. Season with sea salt.
Sprinkle in Italian seasoning, paprika, onion powder and garlic powder, and cook for 30 seconds or until fragrant.
Pour in diced tomatoes, cauliflower, paste and beef stock. Simmer for at least 30 minutes (the longer, the better)!
Sprinkle salt to taste. Garnish with parsley!
Looks delish! You mentioned cauliflower rice in introduction but it is not listed in the recipe. Did you just serve the soup over the rice? Or simmer it with the tomatoes and stock? I really enjoy your posts….
Oh my goodness, yep — totally forgot that ingredient!!! Thank you so much for catching this!! I’ve updated the recipe!
Sounds good! I;m confused though because you mentioned cauliflower rice in the beginning of the post but not in the recipe?! Did you put it in the soup or just serve the soup over it? Either way I assume you could substitute brown rice is you’re not doing Whole30?
Yes — I totally missed that ingredient while writing up the recipe!!! WOW. Thank you SO much for bringing to my attention. I need a proof reader!!! Also — YES — you can def use regular rice!!
