Pressure Cooker Stuffed Pepper Soup

Pressure Cooker Stuffed Pepper Soup

This stuffed pepper soup is made easy in a pressure cooker and with spiralized bell peppers, for easy prep and cleanup, as a one pot meal! 

Pressure Cooker Stuffed Pepper Soup

Stuffed pepper soup is exactly what it sounds like – a soup version of stuffed peppers! Stuffed peppers are one of my favorite meal prep meals, because they save well, reheat well, and although they take a lot of prep work, they’re easy to make.

Pressure Cooker Stuffed Pepper Soup

Stuffed peppers come in many different forms – sometimes there’s meat, something there’s a grain (like rice or quinoa), but no matter which way you make them, they’re always satisfying and easily translated into a soup.

The soup version of stuffed peppers is basically a deconstructed version in soup broth. I love the tomato-y base of this stuffed pepper soup and instead of spending time over the stovetop, it’s all made in a pressure cooker (I love my Mealthy), so you can literally add all the ingredients and step away.

Of course, since this is Inspiralized, the peppers are spiralized, which is not only easier to prep, but a nice consistency to the soup. If you’d like to make this soup even heartier, you could stir in some cooked grains (farro, brown rice, or quinoa) at the end, once you’re done cooking.

You can swap in ground chicken or ground beef here for the ground turkey, for a different protein and flavor. This soup also saves and reheats well, so bookmark it for meal prep!

  • Definitely want to make this one! I have an abundance of green bell peppers in my house right now...think this would work with green peppers, too? Thanks
    • Would definitely work with the green peppers!
  • Would love to make this but don't have a pressure cooker. How long would you have everything simmer if I did stove top method. Or would slow cooking be a better replica?
  • Yum! Making it tonight, but on the stove top.
    • Ohh! Let us know how it goes, Caitlyn!!
  • I added some napa cabbage - loved it!
  • Do you think you could make this over the stove?
    • Yes, definitely! The flavors may not be as robust, but it can be done!
