Easy Stuffed Pepper Soup

1 Tbsp. olive oil

2 14.5 oz. cans diced tomatoes, do not drain
1 29 oz. can tomato sauce
2 cups beef broth
2 cups water
2 Tbsp. Italian seasoning
2 tsp. sea salt to taste
1/2 tsp. black pepper to taste
12 oz. cauliflower rice, fresh or frozen

Heat olive oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, until shimmering.  Add the minced garlic and sauté for about a minute.  Add the ground beef; cook, breaking up into smaller pieces, until browned.  Add the peppers, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, broth, water and Italian seasoning.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for about 10-15 minutes, until the peppers are tender.  Add the cauliflower rice.  Cook for 3-4 minutes until rice is tender.  Add salter and pepper to taste.
