Easy Stuffed Peppers Soup Recipe
- 1 kg pork meat
- 200 g rice
- 1 medium white onion
- 2 medium tomatoes
- 2 carrots
- 500 ml tomato broth
- celery leaves
- salt and pepper
Required kitchen utensils:
– meat grinder
– slotted spoon
– a thin knife with a pointed tip
– a 6-liter pot
– chef’s knife

1. Preparing the ingredients
The peppers should have the same size; wash them and remove the stub using the thin knife with a pointed tip to keep the whole peppers intact.
Make a circular cut around the top of peppers, remove their seeds, wash them again and let them drain out of the water.
Pork meat is fed through the meat grinder.
Rice is washed well in several changes of water and left to drain.
Onion is peeled and cut into small slices.
Peel the carrots, wash and cut them in two.
Tomatoes are washed and cut into 0.5 cm thick slices.
2. Preparation of soup
Mix the rice with minced meat and chopped onion, season with salt and pepper to taste.
Fill the peppers with the meat mixture and cover them with a slice of tomato.
In a large pot, put peppers and then, pour water over them to cover well.
Place the pot on the stove and let simmer. With a slotted spoon, remove the scum as many times as needed.
Add carrots and season with salt as needed.
Allow the soup to boil for about an hour and a half, two hours, depending on how tender the pork is.
After the meat has been cooked, add the tomato broth and let the soup boil for several minutes. Turn off the stove, add the celery leaves and then, cover the pot with a lid.
3. Serving the soup
Decorate the soup with parsley leaves and serve it with chili peppers. Those who want can add sour cream.
Vegan people can choose mushrooms instead of pork meat and the result will be just as tasty as the meat version, but this depends on the taste of everyone.
Enjoy your meal!

Beans would be an excellent addition as well. And of course, feel free to use all green bell peppers in the soup or use multicolored peppers for a more colorful soup.
