Stuffed Green Pepper Soup

I pinned this recipe from the website: http://www.cookingclassy.com/2014/09/stuffed-pepper-soup/ and decided to give it a try yesterday (with a few changes). I was really happy with how it turned out. 

Ingredients: 
1 lb turkey burger
2 Tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper
1 onion, diced
1 large green pepper, diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce
1 cup broth (I used chicken because that was all I had)
1 Tbsp parsley
1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tsp oregano
1 can chili beans (drained and rinsed)
1 cup brown rice 

Start by browning the turkey burger with 1 Tbsp of the olive oil and some salt and pepper in a large pot. When the turkey is browned, remove it to a plate that is covered with paper towels. In the same pot, add the remaining 1 Tbsp olive oil, onion, and green pepper. Let that saute for a few minutes. Add the garlic. Stir for about 30 seconds. Then add the tomatoes, tomato sauce, parsley, basil, and oregano. I added chili beans for added protein. 

Stir and let simmer 


When ready to serve, make your rice. Stir in some rice when you are ready to eat. Keep the rice and soup separate until just before eating.
