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 liter chicken stock
1 pinch nutmeg
1 sprig of thyme
1 bay leaf

> Dissolve the stock in a liter 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.

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