Oats soup recipe – Vegetable oats soup is one of the easiest oats recipes that one can try for a quick breakfast or light dinner. It’s absolutely delicious, healthy and nourishing. To make this vegetable oats soup, any kind of oats like rolled oats, quick cook oats or even steel cut oats can be used. Only the cooking time varies for each of these.

I have used only carrots, french beans, sweet corn and green peas to make this but you can also use potato, sweet potato, stir fried cauliflower, mushrooms, broccoli etc. I have made this slightly spicy by adding red chili flakes and pepper which can be skipped.

Often I run out of ideas for the evening snack to feed the hungry kids. Soups are something that instantly comes to my mind. Sandwiches or bread snacks go great with this a bowl of warm soup.

How to make oats soup

1. Melt butter and saute garlic until it turns aromatic. You can also use ginger if you like the flavor.

4. Add water as needed to suit your taste.

5. Cook it on a medium heat until the veggies are cooked. We don’t need to add any thickeners here since oats makes the soup slightly thicker. Add more water if needed to bring it to a consistency.

6. Add herbs and pepper. You can also use fresh herbs. I used mixed italian herbs.

This is a really good, versatile soup. I was looking for something just like this for breakfast — light, easy on the stomach, and versatile. I just used some frozen veggies we had in the freezer and added half a block of tofu, diced in small pieces, to give it some protein. My wife and I both loved it and will be making it again often.

Thank you so much for the easy and healthy recipe. The photo reminded me of a soup I like from my favorite Chinese restaurant. So I used oil instead of butter to saute the oats, added ground ginger and garlic, and sprinkled some sesame oil at the end. Wonderful.
