I'm Kathy Lloyd. I grew up on a farm near Elmore, MN and have lived in Fairmont for over 44 years. I have always loved to cook, even when I was very young. I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.

If this isn’t soup weather I don’t know what is! We have had a pretty mild winter until now, this cold spell has lasted awhile and isn’t for the faint hearted, it makes it easy to stay inside doesn’t it? Today is one of those comforting soup recipes that Carolyn Seidel was generous enough to share with me. I hope it warms you and yours up! Before I forget the recipe I shared last week is best if you drain most of the liquid off of the corn before adding, its otherwise too juicy.
Stuffed Green Pepper Soup
1/2 cup white rice, cooked to make one cup, set aside
1 pound lean hamburger, crumbled and cooked until no pink
Add : 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 medium sized onion, chopped
1 cup chopped green pepper, cook 5-6 minutes longer
3 cups beef broth
14.5 oz. can stewed tomatoes ( chop large pieces of the tomato)
2 Tablespoon brown sugar
3 bouillon cubes or 2 tsp. of bouillon granules
1/2 tsp. ground pepper
Bring to boil, then simmer for 30 minutes
1 cup cooked rice
Let simmer for another 5 minutes so soup is hot for serving.
Garnish with fresh chopped parsley.
Have a great week, stay warm and safe!
