What Is Stuffed Pepper Soup
Deconstructed stuffed peppers in soup form. The same ingredients of stuffed pepper, plus a few more to give it a brothy texture so you can enjoy as a soup.
Can I Add Pre-Cooked Rice Into The Soup
You can add in pre-cooked rice if you have some on hand you want to use up. What I suggest in this is once the soup is done, stir in the pre-cooked rice. If you add it in when you go to pressure cook, it can overcook the rice and make it mushy. So stir it in at the end and let it warm up, then serve.
What Type of Rice Do You Use for Stuffed Pepper Soup
I used long grain rice. Now if you swap out a different type of rice it will need an adjusted cook time. Brown rice takes longer than long-grain white rice. So take account into that.
Can I Swap Meat In Instant Pot Stuffed Pepper Soup
Yes. You can use ground pork, ground beef, turkey, or even chicken. Each meat will, of course, offer a different flavor to the dish, but you are welcome to use any of the ground meats. Just make sure to properly cook the meat, and then follow the next steps in preparing the soup.
What To Serve With Stuffed Pepper Soup
Generally, we eat this soup alone. But pair with a salad, cornbread, dinner roll, or even a vegetable side dish. It is what I like to call a meal in one, where it is filling and tasty enough you don’t have to serve up other sides.
Toppings For Stuffed Pepper Soup
- A dollop of Sour Cream
- A dollop of Greek Yogurt
- Green Onions
- Splash of Hot Sauce
- Fresh herbs for color
Can You Freeze Stuffed Pepper Soup
Yes. You are welcome to freeze the soup if you don’t plan to eat it all. Simply let the soup cool down and then transfer into a container or freezer bag. If you do a container leave room at the top for it to expand as it freezes. Then store in the freezer for up to three months. Thaw in the fridge the night before you plan to warm it up.
