Stuffed Green Pepper Soup!

After falling in love with Zoup!'s Overstuffed Bell Pepper Soup, I attempted to make it! We love stuffed peppers in our house.

1 lb ground turkey
1/2 medium onion, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
1 lb green pepper, diced
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 (16 ounce) can diced tomatoes or crushed tomatoes
2 cups water or low sodium beef broth
1-2 teaspoon beef base
salt and pepper
2 cups brown rice

Brown ground beef until fully cooked.
Drain fat from turkey (if any) and set aside. Saute the vegetables in the same pan. Add water or broth, beef base, ground beef and rendered fat, let simmer for at least 15 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. The longer this soup simmers the better the flavor.
