If you love stuffed bell peppers, you will love this soup! This one is healthier with vegetarian meat, whole-grain brown rice and no-salt added tomatoes. Perfect for a cold day!
Growing up, my mom made stuffed bell peppers every so often and for some reason, I never liked them. I've never been a fan of thoroughly cooked peppers (although I love them lightly cooked). Around my due date with my daughter last year, my mom made a homemade stuffed bell pepper soup that was awesome. I couldn't stop eating it.
As you can tell, this soup is now very sentimental to me. What can I say, I'm a sap! Recently I asked my mom to make this soup for us. What I love about it is that the tomato base is kind of creamy and is fresh tasting. It is not highly seasoned and has a simpler taste which I love.
This brand also has chicken strips, meatballs and more. Beyond Meat products are made to provide people with the food that they love but without the negatives of animal meat. I like the texture of this "meat" and think that in a dish, it is pretty much just like regular meat. I love secretly substituting vegetarian products for regular ones and "tricking" my husband. He loves vegetarian meals though so he never minds. My husband didn't even know that this was vegetarian.
