It’s National Rice Month,and we’re celebrating with this delicious Spicy Stuffed Pepper Soup made with U.S.-grown long grain white rice. sponsored.  Rice remains a staple item in our home because it’s extremely versatile and nutrient-rich. Did you know that U.S.-grown rice contributes more than 15 vitamins and minerals, including folic acid and other B-vitamins, as well as iron and zinc? And it’s comprised of complex carbohydrates that are more slowly digested and provide energy that fuels the body’s physical activity. Impressive, right?!  For this Spicy Stuffed Pepper Soup, I used long grain white rice, which has a firmer and fluffier texture due to its higher amylose content—making it the perfect companion for pilafs, stir-fry, & soups. When making this recipe, I recommend using a rice cooker, especially a Zojirushi. Their new induction heating rice cooker is the latest in rice cooking technology! It’s really easy to use,and my rice turns out perfect every time. Check out the full recipe below! @think_rice @zojirushiamerica #thinkrice #nationalricemonth  Ingredients: · 2 lbs ground Italian sausage  · 1 tablespoon olive oil  · 3 cloves garlic, minced  · 1 onion, chopped  · 2 red bell peppers, sliced  · 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced  · 1 green bell pepper, sliced  · 1 (28oz) can crushed tomatoes  · 1 cup diced tomatoes  · 3 cups beef broth  · ½ teaspoon smoked paprika  · ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper  · ½ teaspoon fennel seed  · 1 teaspoon Italian spice seasoning  · Salt/pepper to taste  · 2 ½ cups cooked U.S.-grown rice  Instructions  1. In a large pot on medium-high heat, add the oil, ground Italian sausage, garlic, and onions. Cook until the meat is just browned.  2. Next, add in the bell peppers, crushed and diced tomatoes, beef broth, and seasonings.  3. Cover and cook for about 15 minutes or until the peppers are soft.  4. Add in the cooked rice and season with salt/pepper to taste. Continue to cook for a couple more minutes. If you prefer a thinner soup, an add more beef broth. The cooked rice tends to absorb a good amount of the broth.  5. Serve warm, and top with parmesan cheese if desired. Enjoy!  Servings: 6
