My first Colorado Christmas is over and I’m officially back to work tomorrow. The past several days have consisted of eating, eating, and more eating. And I know that this weekend will consist of eating, eating, and more eating, as well. I turned to Gina at Skinnytaste to find a healthy, filling meal for dinner tonight. Skinnytaste is one of my go-to blogs and the Stuffed Pepper Soup is definitely going to be a new staple in our house.
3 cups cooked brown rice
1 lb ground turkey
1 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 cup chopped red bell pepper
1 cup finely diced onion
3 cloves garlic, chopped
2 cans (14.5 oz each) cans petite diced tomatoes
1 3/4 cups tomato sauce
2 cups reduced sodium, fat-free chicken broth
1/2 tsp dried marjoram
salt and pepper to taste
Brown ground turkey in a dutch oven. Drain fat and reduce heat to medium. Add peppers, onions, and garlic, cooking for about 5 minutes.
Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, chicken broth, and dried marjoram to dutch oven. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer for at least 30 minutes.
Serve soup with brown rice.
