Keto stuffed pepper soup is flavorful and nutritious low carb soup with ground beef, red and green peppers cooked with beef broth and tomato. This delicious keto Mediterranean soup is family friendly twist of popular stuffed peppers, just in low carb version.
Stuffed peppers are actually something that is usually linked to summer in my world. In Mediterranean, especially in Balkans, we eat stuffed peppers so often during the summer when pepper season starts. That’s fantastic dish because you can make a huge amount and eat for few days. Just reheat and enjoy!
I love this version of low carb stuffed pepper soup even better, because you can make it even faster. There is no need to stuff the peppers, just cut them and cook with other ingredients.
So easy to prepare, so little time to invest and the taste is so original! Fantastic and inexpensive dish for your keto meal prepping for the working week. You can make it in the instant pot to have it even faster, or in a slow cooker. Fantastically versatile dish.
HOW TO MAKE KETO STUFFED PEPPER SOUP
This low carb ground beef soup with peppers is really easy to make. Here is what you will need to get a really delicious deep flavor of original Mediterranean stuffed peppers, just in a soup version.
As for every dish with ground beef or when I want to get that deep and big flavor, I start with cooking chopped onion on a hot olive oil. You may use lard or another fat, but for this Mediterranean stuffed pepper soup, I use olive oil to be more traditional.
When onion is golden brown and release the flavor and becomes caramelized, add ground beef.
Ground beef should be also caramelized. I love to caramelize onion first and afterwards to add meat and stir occasionally until beef meat is caramelized too. It should be brown. When ground meat is brown, add peppers chopped in small pieces and minced garlic. Stir for few minutes and add crushed canned tomato, broth, water, salt, pepper and spices, bring it to boil. Stir and cook for 20 minutes, covered, on a medium heat on the stove. If you have time, cook it as long as it’s possible, taste will be better as longer you cook it.
Serving stuffed pepper soup
You may serve it as a soup, just like that, in a bowl and enjoy! If you cook it longer and additionally reduce it you can serve it with cauliflower mash, cauliflower rice or with a slice of some nice keto bread.
It’s great if you sprinkle fresh parsley, chopped spring onion, and add spoon of sour cream or shredded cheddar cheese on top. It will look so good and taste will be even better.
