Oat soup

 

 - Oat soup
Preparation: 5 min
Cooking time: 10 min

Ingredients (serves 4)
2 tbsp oil
100g lettuce leaves
1 large onion
1 big clove of garlic
6 tbsp oats
1 litre chicken stock
1 pinch nutmeg
1 sprig of thyme
1 bay leaf

Preparation
> Dissolve the stock in a litre of boiling water.

> Heat the oil in a pan and add the diced onion and lettuce leaves.
When the onion is tender, add the stock and pour in the oats. Add the crushed garlic, thyme and bay leaf.

> Bring to the boil and leave to simmer for 5 minutes. Remove the bay leaf and thyme, season with nutmeg and serve.

Why it's so good...
It's light but nourishing. Oats are very simple but full of vitamins and fibre. You can make it in advance and re-heat in the microwave. Add a bit of soy sauce for extra flavour.
