    Karen Elizabeth's Note:

    A simple but warming soup, the oats add bulk and a distinctive flavour of their own Even better served the next day! This recipe is a bit 'by feel' ...amounts are more for guidance! I added more stock than the recipe states, and I never used the milk at all, I added a little extra water when I felt the soup was becoming too thick. I don't feel it needs the milk. I also didn't add the salt and pepper, it depends on individual taste. I used medium-ground oatmeal, about two rounded tablespoons (like the olive oil, what you feel is enough), you can use rolled oats, but DONT use 'instant oats', they are most often packed with salt, sugar and other flavourings, you want 'the Real McCoy') My husband has high cholesterol and I try to include oats in his daily menus, as they have many health benefits.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Add vegetables to olive oil and 'sweat' them over a very gentle heat, with the lid on, for five minutes, until just coated and softened.
    2. 2
      Stir in the oatmeal and cook for another minute or so, stirring to prevent sticking.
    3. 3
      Pour in the stock and stir well.
    4. 4
      bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 45 minutes.
    5. 5
      Add seasoning (if using) and parsley.
    6. 6
      Finally, add milk (if using), reheat gently, and serve hot.

      Very nice recipe and tasty soup. I like another reviewer's idea of subbing parsnip for the turnip, and I might try that next time. (Though I am a turnip fan.) I skipped the milk but added a few spoonfuls of half and half. I think the salt and pepper are a must.

      Very nice, comforting soup for lunch on a dreary winter day! I did use the vegetable stock to keep it vegetarian & pretty much followed the recipe, although I did replace the S&P with lemon pepper, which we like! I'm not usually one to have turnips, but it worked well in this soup! [Made & reviewed for the VIP chef in the Vegetarian/Vegan Recipe Swap 19]

      This does have a "chicken soup" like appeal to it, simple but in a good comfort food kind of way. I used some plain almond milk to make it vegan. Other than that I made it as written...although I must admit when it was done I added a few more herbs in (thyme for one)....could be down to my stock being less flavourful. I love the oatmeal in this. Doubled the recipe so that there is a batch waiting in the freezer! Thanks Karen. Made for Veg*n Swap Dec 09.
