Cooking Thursday

We eat lots of soup in the winter. It's usually very economical, easy to make and just tastes good when it's cold outside. The recipe I'm sharing is all that and healthy too!
If you like stuffed peppers, you'll like this soup.

i wonder how difficult it would be for me to adapt this into a crockpot recipe? i'm too impatient to stir soup on the stove for 30 minutes

This looks absolutely spectacular, Mari. We too love soup in the winter, although this year we've had no winter to speak of. I'll definitely be making this one. Thanks so much for all the delicious ideas you share with us.
