Reviews for Unstuffed Pepper Soup
"My family LOVES this soup! We love mushrooms, but I omit them in this recipe. I have also made it with uncooked instant rice and it turned out great! I also use any color peppers."
"Omitted the mushrooms as they are not needed. Added the seasonings I would add when I make stuffed peppers and it was really good. Leftovers are AMAZING since the flavors blended overnight. Keeper."
"I have made this recipes a lot, as I have a garden and tons of peppers. This is a great soup."
"I love stuffed peppers, but when I make them we eat the stuffing and usually leave most of the pepper on the plate! So this soup is perfect--the peppers are much easier to eat when bite-sized. The flavor is amazing, especially in the summer when the veggies are so fresh. I add a teaspoon of garlic powder and either a teaspoon of red pepper flakes or a drained can of rotel tomatoes. I also add 2 cups of frozen corn. And I simmer the soup for an hour. We just had "soup there it is!" day at work, and everyone said it was delicious!"
"Leave the mushrooms out"
"Simple, delicious and tastes just like stuffed peppers without all the work. Perfect as is."
"Just finished a bowl of this wonderful soup * It does taste like a stuffed pepper. I cut back on the amount of tomatoes by one can.Love the taste and rough texture that this one offers * I used Sausage instead of ground meat. That is what I had on hand. Did I mention the smell ? Divine. Made it for dinner, ate it for lunch !JanieTaste Of Home Volunteer Field Editor"
