So many garden green peppers to use up! Easy recipe and great on a fall day. The turkey sandwich was a nice balance. We loved this meal!


Turkey Apple and Swiss Melt

Stuffed Pepper Soup

1 c chopped onion
1/4 c celery
1 clove garlic, minced
2 c green pepper, chopped
1/2 lb  lean ground beef,
1 – 16oz can crushed tomatoes
1/2 c tomato juice (I use 4 oz tomato sauce)
1/4 c uncooked white rice
3 c water
1T chopped fresh parsley
2 t sugar (takes the tomato bitterness away)
1 t salt ( to taste )
1 t black pepper

Saute onion, celery, garlic and green pepper til tender but not brown. Stir beef into vegs, cook til beef is brown. Stir in rice.  Add tomatoes, juice, water, parsley, sugar salt and pepper. Cover and simmer 45 min or til rice is cooked. Adjust liquid as necessary.

I doubled the recipe and added more salt.  I also let it simmer for about 1 hr and 15 minutes.
