When you’re craving stuffed peppers but don’t want all the work of making them, this easy stuffed pepper soup recipe is your answer! It’s hearty, full of vegetables, and a cozy meal for cool nights — similar to keto chili, but with less simmering time. It’s best stuffed bell pepper soup I’ve ever made! And because this keto stuffed bell pepper soup is made with cauliflower rice instead of traditional white rice, it’s also naturally healthy, low carb, paleo, and whole30 approved, without any special ingredients.
If you love stuffed peppers and have a little more time, try my more classic versions: taco stuffed peppers, lasagna stuffed peppers, chicken fajita stuffed peppers, or Mexican stuffed poblano peppers.
How To Make Stuffed Pepper Soup
- Saute aromatics. Heat oil in dutch oven until shimmering. Add minced garlic and saute until fragrant.
- Brown beef. Add ground beef to dutch oven, breaking up with a spatula, and cook until browned.
- Add vegetables. Add bell peppers, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, bone broth, water, and Italian seasoning.
TIP: Adjust salt if needed. If you use regular broth instead of bone broth, you’ll need to add additional salt to taste.
- Simmer. Bring stuffed bell pepper soup to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until peppers are tender.
- Add cauliflower rice. Cook for just a few more minutes, until it’s tender. Adjust salt and pepper to your liking, and enjoy!
Stuffed Pepper Soup Recipe FAQs
How many calories in stuffed pepper soup?
The calories in stuffed pepper soup will vary from recipe to recipe. This recipe has 441 calories per generous 2 cup serving (enough for a meal).
How many carbs in stuffed pepper soup?
Most stuffed pepper soup recipes are made with rice, which will give them about 20 grams carbohydrates or so, depending on the recipe.
This stuffed pepper soup recipe is made with cauliflower rice, which drastically lowers the net carbs to 7.7 grams in a large bowl (2 cups). That’s enough for a meal, or if you prefer, feel free to halve the serving size and serve it with something on the side instead.
Is stuffed pepper soup healthy?
Absolutely! Much like my vegetable soup recipe, this one is packed with veggies. And with the beef added, it’s a complete meal, too.
Can you use regular rice?
Yes, you can, it would just be less healthy and not low carb. If you use regular rice, you’d need to add the rice at the same time as the broth, before simmering, because it takes much longer to cook than cauliflower rice.
What to serve with stuffed pepper soup?
If you go with the listed serving size of 2 cups, your simple stuffed pepper soup may not even need a side. If you’d like to have one, serve it with a simple green salad with Caesar salad dressing, or maybe a batch of my healthy garlic cheese bread.
