Ciorba de ardei umpluti (Stuffed Peppers Soup)

Share


            Desi imi place foarte mult supa de ardei umpluti o pregatesc destul de rar acasa deoarece sotul meu nu e fan supe cu bulion si banuiesc ca noi toate incercam sa gatim pe gustul intregii familii de obicei, nu? Din cand in cand o incerc totusi in speranta ca voi obtine aroma deosebita pe care i-o dadea bunica mea si chiar daca nu e la fel, amintirea e foarte frumoasa! La mine fiecare mancare are o anumita istorioara si mereu corelez aroma cu amintirea :) Cum afara caldura inca nu a preluat controlul de tot, am zis ca e o ocazie buna sa pregatesc ciorba aceasta :)
          Aceasta reteta merge si la YBR, provocarea organizata de Nancy de la SpicieFoodie! Va recomand cu mult drag blogul ei, e unul dintre cele mai bune!
           Though I love stuffed peppers soup I rarely make it since my husband is not a huge fan of tomato based soups and I guess all of us try to cook food that all family enjoys right? Once in a while I make this soup hoping that I'll get that special flavour my grandma's soup used to have, and even though it's never the same, the way I remember it is always special :) For me every dish has a history and I always relate the flavour to my memory :)  Because heat didn't take control outside yet, I thought it'd be a great occasion to cook this delicious soup :)
            This recipe also goes to YBR, the challenge organised by Nancy from SpicieFoodie! I greatly recommend her blog, as it's one of the best out there! 


Ingrediente/Ingredients:

400 g carne tocata  porc/400 g ground pork
100 g orez bob mic/100 g Arborio rice
8-10 ardei mici dulci/8-10 small sweet peppers
2 morcovi/2 carrots
2 patrunjei radacina/2 parsley roots
1/4 telina/1/4 celery root
2 cepe/2 onions
1 rosie mare/1 big tomato
300 ml bulion/300 ml tomato sauce
1 lingura faina/1 tablespoon with flour
patrunjel frunze/parsley leaves
sare, piper/salt, pepper            

Cum se face/How it's made:  

Mai intai pregatim umplutura de carne/We first prepare the meat filling:
Intr-un castron punem carnea, orezul spalat, o ceapa tocata marunt, sare, piper si le amestecam bine.
In a bowl we combine meat, washed rice, one chopped onion, salt and pepper.


Spalam bine ardeii, taiem capacul si scobim cu grija miezul si semintele din interiorul ardeiului. Ii scobim pe toti si ii dam deoparte.
We wash the peppers and we roundly cut the tops off and we discard stems and seeds. We set aside.


Curatim ceapa, si radacinoasele si le tocam toate marunt.
We peel vegetables and chop them.  


Intr-o oala prajim putin ceapa, adaugam legumele tocate si punem cam 2 litri de apa si sare.
In a large pot, we  fry the onion, we add the vegetables and 2 litres of water plus some salt.  


Pana cand supa incepe sa fiarba, umplem ardeii cu carne si ii presaram cu putina faina la capete, ca sa nu iasa carnea.
Until the soup starts to boil, we stuff the peppers with the meat filling and we sprinkle some flour at the ends, so the meat doesn't get out.   




Cand apa incepe sa fiarba adaugam ardeii cu grija si ii lasam sa fiarba pana cand orezul este moale.
When the soup starts to boil we add the stuffed peppers carefully and we let the soup boil until the rice is cooked.




Cand ardeii sunt fierti, intr-o tigaie prajim faina cu putin ulei si adaugam bulionul, amestecam bine si adaugam la supa. Amestecam bine, lasam sa fiarba vreo 2 minute si adaugam patrunjel tocat si condimente.
When the peppers are done, in a skillet we fry the flour with some oil, we add the tomato sauce and we pour it in the soup. We stir and we let it boil for another 2 minutes and we add chopped parsley and spices.




Servim cu multa pofta. Se poate pune smantana daca va place, eu o prefer simpla. Bon appetit!
We serve the soup with lots of appetite. You can add sour cream if you desire. I prefer it simple. Bon appetit!

  8. I love stuffed peppers but never had them in a soup, it looks delicious and the colour of the soup is just mouth watering. I would love to try it before it gets too hot for soup outside.

  12. I love both tomato based soups and stuffed peppers. Your soup sounds like the perfect combination to me. Thanks for sharing will have to give your recipe a go soon.

  13. Mihaela, e preferata mea :) Pupici!

    Marci, stii tu cat de buna e :) Te pup iubita!

    Oana, sa o incerci ca e foarte gustoasa! Te pup!

    Megi, it's delicious! if you can find the thin peppers, please try it! Have a great week!

    Antonina, compozitia de carne e similara cu cea de la perisoare, dar gustul de ardei si aroma de tomate o fac mult mai buna, eu o prefer oricand in fata celei de perisoare :) Te pup si iti doresc o saptamana frumoasa!

    Adela, esti de-a mea :) Multumesc de vizita, pupici!

    Guvi, e o reteta ardeleneasca intr-adevar, foarte gustoasa daca gasesti ardei subtiri in perete (gen capia) sper sa-ti placa daca o incerci! O saptamana superba iti doresc si eu tie! XoXo!

    Nancy, it's a traditional recipe from the area I'm from and it's my favourite, if you can find flavourful peppers and tomatoes, it's pure yummyness! Have a great week my dear!

  14. io's ardeleanca,din nord,da'la noi le zice ardei umpluti.nu sunt 2 feluri :ciorba de ardei umpluti si ardei umpluti.Adica ardeii umpluti se fac cu ceva mai mult sos,care impreuna cu smantana cu care se servesc e o nebunie.tu de unde esti din ardeal ?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Eu sunt din Cluj Pansy, dar eu stiu 2 feluri de mancare: ciorba de ardei umpluti si ardei umplut scazut, care are intr-adevar un sos de tomate gros...o sa postez si reteta pentru a doua mancare, doar sa gasesc ardei aromati :) noi nu servim cu smantana nici una din ele, pentru ca e deosebit de bun cu bulion de calitate! Ma rog, eu astea le stiu de acasa, habar nu am cum se fac in alte parti din tara :) Te pup si iti doresc o saptamana frumoasa!

  16. What a colorful and delicious soup! i would have never thought of this combination....I really like how you show the preparation of the ingredients...you make the recipe so easy to follow. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Susie, this delicious soup is one of my family favorites :) I'm happy my step by step photos help you see how I make my recipes, because when I created this blog I wanted my recipes to be very easy to follow :) Thank you for being my visitor, it means a lot to me!

  18. e prima data cand aud de ciorba de ardei umpluti. La mine in Olt se face doar mancare de ardei umpluti, sau ma rog ardei umpluti si se servesc cu smantana.
    interesanta ideea.
    o saptamana cat mai placuta Alina

    ReplyDelete
  19. ca sa vezi ! eu sunt din baia mare.acolo se pune smantana la orice,asa m-am obisnuit si mi se pare tare bun.oricum ardeii umpluti imi plac sub toate formele.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Roxana, sunt sigura ca ti-ar place si ciorba, gustul e foarte similar :) O saptamana frumoasa iti doresc de asemenea!

    Pansy, daca iti plac ardeii umpluti scazuti sigur iti place si ciorba :) O sa pun si eu smantana data viitoare sa vad cum e :)) Pupici si o saptamana faina!

  21. Sincera sa fiu n-am mancat pana acum dar nu poate fi decat delicioasa,te pup!!!

  23. Wow, Alina...This soup looks absolutely amazing! I have never heard of or tried a stuffed pepper soup before, so this is totally new to me.
    Thank you so much for sharing it!
    You have some wonderful recipes and this one truly fits that category...looks so, so delicious. I would love to try it!
    Have a wonderful week!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ellie, this soup is very similar to the meatball soup but it's tomato based; it's delicious if you can find flavorful peppers!(red Sheppard ones are great in the fall) Please try it once, you'll love it!
    Have a lovely week as well and thank you for visiting!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Alina, I had to do a double take on this soup...it looks gorgeous! And I read the recipe three times because I wantec to know what's in it exactly and how you did it :-). I will never see hot peppers the same way again, I've got to try making this recipe in my own home soon.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh, my, this soup looks amazing. I've never had peppers stuffed with pork to start with, then to have them in soup makes it all the more wonderful! Great recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Maya, the peppers are not hot, they're sweet ones! (imported from Mexico I think); if they would've been hot, you wouldn't be able to eat this soup :) Hope I didn't confuse you too much! Other than that it's a delicious soup, and the filling can be changed according to your own taste. Have a great week and thank you for your visit!

    Lizzy, this is a very tasty soup, but you need really flavorful sweet peppers for it! Have a great week Lizzy, love your Eclair Cake :)

  28. :))) ce m-a distrat comentariul lui Ellie, imi si imaginez ce munca de indian batran ar fi fost sa umpli cateva zeci de ardei iuti si sa-i mai si inghiti :DDDDDDDD

    ReplyDelete
  29. Ciorba de ardei umpluti e cea mai potrivita pt. vara; imi aduce aminte de copilarie si ce bine era acasa, Ana

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oana, i-am si trimis email lui Maya sa o atentionez ca nu e vorba de ardei iuti :)) si am rectificat si la ingrediente :) stii care e chestia, aici in Canada gasesti foarte rar ardei lunguieti de forma respectiva, fara a fi iuti si probabil de aceea am indus-o in eroare :)

    Asa e Ana, si eu ma gandesc la acasa de cate ori fac ciorba aceasta :) ce mai faci, ce ai mai gatit? :) XoXo

    ReplyDelete
  31. Alina, what a beautiful looking soup!
    I have to tell you, those stuffed peppers look like cute, little gnome hats! And I'll bet the creative addition made this soup extra special!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Marysol, this is the one soup I could eat every day :)) It's a very comforting soup and really flavourful! Maybe you'l try it some day! Thank you for your visit :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Helo! pai eu imi tot propun sa nu mai gatesc mancaruri care necesita foc, dar nu resusesc;aici e f cald; ma tenteaza sa fac varza a la Cluj (evident) ca e usor de facut si f simplu; ma mai incumet de data asta sa pornesc cuptorul, da am si plecat din bucatarie :))Ana

    ReplyDelete
  34. Very special soup in deed, love the stuffed peppers very much! I myself have a couple of recipes treasured from my beloved grandma :-)

  35. Ce amintiri, inghit in sec.Am mancat o data, anul trecut acasa la Povesti Culinare(Lia)!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Ana, pe caldurile acestea te cred si eu ca nu ai chef de gatit, dupa cum vezi activitatea mea pe blog, nici eu nu prea am chef :) pofta mare la varza a la Cluj, inghit in sec :)) XoXo

    Kris, I'm happy you like it! I guess everybody has a couple of recipes from their grandmothers, don't we? :) Thank you so much for visiting, I really appreciate it! Have a great week, can't wait to see another fabulous cake of yours :)

    Lilly, e foarte buna, doar sa gasesti ardeii respectivi iar vara cand ai rosii de gradina, iti iasa o supa de ardei exceptionala! :) Te pup si iti multumesc de vizita!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Superb arata!Atît de colorata!Foarte apetisanta,si sigur e gustoasa tare!

    ReplyDelete
  38. E tare buna Maya, mai ca-mi vine sa o fac inca o data cand vad pozele :)) stiu ca nu e frumos sa te lauzi dar na :) Pupici!

  39. For those in US, Costco sells the Small Sweet Peppers, you can find them in rectangular plastic boxes in the large vegetable fridge.

    Alina, eu sunt din Bucuresti si stiu atat de mancarica de ardei (care mie imi place cu iaurt, dar asta e un gust propriu) cat si de ciorbita care este foarte aratoasa. Asemanator acesteia o fac cu rosioare (cherry) umplute (superba mai ales daca gasesti rosioare heirloom, in toate culorile, ca si ardeii tai) dar si cu pattypan squash, tot in toate culorile :-)

    Ma bucur ca ti-am descoperit blogul, l-am pus la bookmarks.

    Numai bine, Nina.

    P.S. Ce fel de ciorbite/supe ii plac sotului daca cele pe baza de tomate nu ii plac? Intreb pentru ca mi se pare ca isi restrange destul de serios optiunile mai ales cand se stie ca licopenul, aflat in cantitati mari in rosii este un excelent preventiv pentru cancerul de prostata la barbati...

    ReplyDelete
  40. Nina, ardeii cumparati de mine sunt la cutie si aici in Toronto :) dar nici o supa cu rosii umplute nu as refuza, suna delicios! sotul meu nu se da in vant dupa supa aceasta, el prefera supele cu smantana mai mult, plus ca el are probleme cu pietrele la rinichi, iar rosiile nu sunt bune in acest sens din pacate...stii cum e, fiecare cu situatia lui :)
    Iti multumesc frumos de vizita si te mai astept cu drag, sa stii ca ma bucur mult ca iti place blogul meu! Pupici!
