Polish Stuffed Pepper Soup - All the delicious, comforting flavors of stuffed peppers in an easy to make soup. Perfect fall cool fall and winter nights! Gluten-free with a grain-free option. | This is so good...Stuffed peppers have always been a favorite of mine.  I learned to cook from my Polish mother and grandmother and stuffed peppers have always been a part of the regular rotation.  Today I’m sharing a recipe for Stuffed Pepper Soup that delivers all of the delicious flavors of stuffed peppers in a comforting bowl of soup!

Last year I excitedly shared a recipe for Polish Stuffed Peppers.  I say “excitedly” because I worked on perfecting that recipe for a long time.  I was taught to make them with seasoning salt and canned tomato soup.  Delicious?  Yes.  Real food?  No.  So when I finally nailed down the flavors of one of my childhood favorites, I couldn’t wait to share!

Stuffed Pepper Soup has all of those same comfort food flavors, but in an easy to make soup.  I basically took the recipe for the Polish Stuffed Peppers and tweaked it just a bit to create this recipe.  My husband quickly gave it the thumbs up, so I knew it had to be shared!

You will need a good size stock pot for this recipe.   This is the one that I have and love!  Meat and vegetables brown up so nicely in it, giving even more flavor to your dish.

This recipe makes a lot of soup, but just like with the stuffed peppers, you can freeze leftovers and then you have a delicious meal for later.  Leftovers also make great lunches, so go ahead and make the whole recipe!
