Vegetable Oat Soup

This month’s Recipe ReDux theme is Spring Clean the Kitchen: Cook with at least 3 ingredients that are actually in your refrigerator or pantry right now. Try not to go to the store to buy anything new. Give tips on how to make a healthy dish out of whatever you have on-hand.

After quickly browsing my kitchen, I grabbed some oats, a can of mushrooms, and some vegetable broth: it was soup time!

We’ve had some weird weather around here lately. A few weeks ago, I was wearing shorts, and that’s saying something because I am always cold. I don’t usually break out the shorts until the end of June. Last week? Snowstorms. Perfect soup weather!

Soups are so easy to make. With only a few basic kitchen staples, you can throw everything together into a pot and have a delicious soup simmering on the stove with hardly any fuss or effort. I almost never have to make a trip to the store when I’m making soup– it’s one of the best things to make out of things you already have. My favorite soups are all built on the same simple framework: a broth, a vegetable, and a grain. It’s easy to mix and match and customize to make a recipe your own, and soups can taste amazing without being fancy.

I’m a lifelong fan of oats, and they’ve always been one of my favorite additions to soup: they add taste and texture and heartiness, and effortlessly up the nutritional profile of whatever you’re making.

Easy to make and with only a handful of simple ingredients, this soup is lovely, warm comfort food.

    Great sounding soup! I like that you used oats, gives it some depth and makes it more filling.
    We’ve had weird weather too – alternating between super hot weather and cold, rainy weather… obviously not as big of a shift as you haha 😉
    Stay warm girl!

      Full o’ fail! :[ I could’ve sworn I’d commented before but didn’t see it so I figured the internet was hating on me again so I figured I’d try again now that it’s seemingly being reasonable. Ignoreee me. <3
