Stuffed Bell Pepper Soup

Do you all remember my favorite Roasted Stuffed Peppers? Well, I went and made them into a soup, because soup is everything around here this fall. This one is already a new family favorite!

As a Californian, I’ve always been pretty sure that every dish and every flavor combination out there has a bonus taco form. Fish and chips? Butter chicken? Coq au vin? Yep, pretty sure that someone out there has made them into tacos.

The more I explore delicious soup recipes, I’m becoming more and more sure that every flavor combination has it’s bonus soup form as well. I started looking at everything we enjoy in our favorite Roasted Stuffed Peppers and thought, well, with a little bit of tweaking, and with some more tomatoes and chicken broth and seasoning, our Stuffed Pepper ingredients would probably be pretty darn awesome as a soup.

We tested the theory, sauteeing some onion, garlic, and diced bell peppers together, throwing them into the pot with some fire roasted tomatoes and tomato sauce and chicken broth, and adding the Arborio rice and seasonings until things tasted right, and there we were – one delicious soup dish that was calorie-friendly, absolutely delicious, and even had our favorite goat cheese on top.

We’re a little obsessed with goat cheese around here. It’s about the only kind of cheese that doesn’t really set off Scott’s stomach {if I haven’t mentioned it too many times already, we recently discovered he’s lactose intolerant}. And it goes great as a topping for this soup!

I hope you enjoy this soup as much as y’all have enjoyed our original roasted peppers!
