Stuffed green pepper soup? If you LOVE stuffed peppers, you'll LOVE this soup. Lean ground beef, peppers (green, red, yellow, orange), tomatoes. Served with rice. All the taste, but minus the work. Not only is this a soup, but it can easily be used as a pasta sauce by using a bit less broth. Such a versatile soup that tastes so good and freezes beautifully as well.
Serve this as a soup with rice on top. Stir the rice in. OR, serve as a sauce with pasta. Yummy!

I was looking for a vegetable beef soup recipe that used green peppers. Didn't find what I wanted in my German cookbooks. I knew I loved stuffed green peppers, so this recipe is a great alternative to making a similar taste in an easier way.
Like the soup above? You'll love looking at and making more of Oma's soups. All so quick and easy!
What makes these soups so wunderbar? They bring back such wonderful memories of my Mutti's kitchen. So, of course, I had to write my own soup e-cookbook to share with my grandchildren. I know you'll LOVE it, too! There are 84 full-color pages filled with step-by-step instructions and hints. Take a quick peek ...
Sharing these soup recipes from my Mutti and Oma to my own young grandchildren ... that's such a delicious way to pass on our German heritage :)
A bit of this and a bit of that ...
I've used a mixture of lean ground beef, lean ground pork, and/or lean ground chicken. All work fantastic.
Add more or less of the veggies. Add chopped celery. Add sliced mushrooms. You decide how creative you want to be!
Use it just the way it is as a spaghetti meat sauce. Delicious served over spaghetti.
If you're looking for green pepper recipes because you have an abundance in the garden, then make this soup and freeze it for use in the winter.
If you're looking for the best ground beef recipes, well this should certainly be one of them. So versatile, since it can be used as a pasta sauce.
Is this (un)stuffed green pepper soup ... German. Nope. So, it's among my Non German favorites!
I've teamed up with my own business coach, Renae Christine (yes, do google her!), to bring you this free masterclass. After you watch it, ask me any questions and I'll gladly answer them.
Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.
PS: Yes, Renae really is as amazing as all the reviews say.
PPS: Yes, the course is for handmade items, but I've used it successfully for my cookbooks. I know others are using her methods for services, direct sales ,and even a local ice cream bar & grill that's constantly selling out. You've nothing to lose by taking a look.
