Stuffed Green Pepper… Soup

Hey guys! 

 I don’t know about y’all, but it has been crazy chilly here. I crave soup almost every day now. And peppermint mochas yum! 
One of my favorite low fat dishes is stuffed green peppers, but I wanted the same taste in soup form. To the crockpot!
What you need : 
2 green peppers
1 cup brown rice 
3 cups beef stock
1 can crushed tomato 
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 pound lean ground beef 
1 onion 
1/4 cup fresh garlic 
1/2 Parmesan cheese
2 tsp fennel seeds
Garlic powder
Onion powder
Brown the beef and chop onion. Add onion and garlic to browned beef. Cook until onions are translucent. I used a crockpot at this point. You can definitely use a soup pot and cook on low for 1 hour. Add all ingredients to crockpot minus cheese. Cook on high for 2 hours then on low for 1 hour. Add cheese. Salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
