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.

I remember when I was in labor and was about to go to the hospital to give birth to my daughter, I knew I needed to eat something but nothing sounded good. The only thing that sounded good was my mom's stuffed bell pepper soup. I called her up (she only lives 1/2 mile away from me) and asked if she had any more of that soup left.

Luckily, she did! I believe that we went over to her house to pick some up to have for dinner that night. I remember eating with my husband on our back patio that soup and having bites through contractions! We talked about how this was our last meal before becoming parents. The next day, I gave birth to my daughter!!

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.

For this particular batch of stuffed bell pepper soup, I used a vegetarian protein. I have been using Beyond Meat products for years and really like them in different dishes. You cannot even tell that it is not real meat. It looks like meat and when cooked in dishes, tastes like meat. I am not personally a vegetarian but I would say about 2/3 of the meals that we eat are vegetarian. I enjoy eating this way for health reasons and to save money.

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.

By using brown rice and no-added salt tomato products, the recipe is a lot healthier and has more fiber and a lot less sodium. The tomatoes, onions and bell peppers are full of lots of vitamins. You can either have something like a salad on the side or enjoy this soup for your whole meal.
