Stuffed Pepper Soup

Stuffed Pepper Soup - the low-carb version!


Do you know what I miss the most when eating low carb? It isn’t the sweets, although I do miss some sugary treats. But I’m more of a savory foods person. I miss my favorite comfort foods, especially soup. I decided to make one of my favorites–stuffed pepper soup–a little more carb friendly, and it’s seriously one of the most simple low carb meals you can make. 

I made a few changes to the traditional version to get a little more flavor into this healthier makeover. First, I used ground pork instead of ground beef. Second, I substituted rice for the cauliflower. I promise, you won’t even miss the rice. It’s that good.
