I was craving a warm hearty soup this week. Between the cooler temperatures outdoors and my non stop sinus issue, I just needed soup.
One problem. I was sick. I was cranky. And I didn’t want to fuss with washing a big soup pan and then another pan that I’d have to prepare the quinoa in.
That’s why I decided to go Instant Pot for this.
I can toss the Instant Pot pot/liner in the dishwasher and never give it another thought.
One more problem.
I actually don’t know how to cook quinoa in an Instant Pot.
Note to self: Learn how to cook quinoa in an Instant Pot.
I was in no mood for researching and trial and error, so I looked around and saw that I had some brown rice in the pantry. Brown rice is healthy-ish, right?

All the flavors of stuffed peppers transformed into this hearty yet healthy Instant Pot version.
- 1 T corn or vegetable oil
- 1 lb ground turkey
- 1 C diced sweet onion
- 1 green bell pepper diced
- 1 yellow or orange bell pepper diced
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 15 oz can diced tomato do not drain liquid
- 1 15 oz can tomato sauce
- 4 C chicken broth
- 1 tsp dry Italian seasoning
- 1 tsp salt I use kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper freshly cracked
- 1 C brown rice not cooked
Turn Instant Pot to Saute function. Once it reads "hot", add oil. Place onions and peppers in pot and cook 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in garlic and cook 30 more seconds.
Add ground turkey to pot. Cook, stirring occasionally, until turkey is no longer pink.
Season with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning.
Stir in diced tomato and tomato sauce. Add the rice to the top (somewhat evenly) and pour broth over everything.
Place lid on, seal and set to manual - high pressure for 13 minutes. When 13 minutes is up, allow pressure to naturally release.
After natural release, stir soup and serve.
