I am a very big fan of stuffed peppers. They are so yummy and I have been seeing stuffed pepper soup all over Pinterest and I had to make it vegan. This soup is made in a slow cooker and so you can put it all in and forget about it. The soup is warm, satisfying and filling.
I was skeptical when making this soup but it really was so delicious. It is only 9 ingredients and making it in the slow cooker makes it a perfect weeknight dinner! If you don’t have a slow cooker you can of course just make this on the stove. However, I really have been loving my crockpot.
You can use any vegan ground beef replacement you like, I went with the plant based crumbles from Lightlife. This recipe would also work great with TVP, crumbled tempeh, tofu or lentils. If you decide to use a vegan ground beef replacement like Beyond Meat’s Beyond Beef or Impossible Foods I would recommend pan-frying the meat first. However, if you are using some sort of plant based crumbles you can just add them right into the crockpot.
I designed this recipe to be a bit on the smaller side you will get 2-3 servings from it. I personally don’t like leftovers after more than the next day. Also, I am the only one who usually eats my recipes so I would rather not waste the food. If you want more servings feel free to double the recipe. I decided to top mine with green onion, vegan cheese and a little vegan sour cream!
