This easy oatmeal vegetable soup makes a hearty meal for busy weekdays. This recipe is a smart way to hide all veggies ideal for picky eaters. My kids love it!! Vegan and gluten-free!
My kids are picky eaters most of the time especially when it comes to eating their veggies! So time and again I try to hide them in my homemade express pasta sauce or in a soup like this Indian vegetarian tortilla soup. These recipes are always a winner, at least as of now!
Why oats in the soup?
- My kids do not like oatmeal. So, hiding in this soup is a good idea. They slurp it down without any fuss.
- If you are bored of having sweet oatmeal for breakfast you can try this soup for a change. It is very nourishing and keeps you full until the next meal.
- Oats make the soup ultra creamy without adding any heavy cream. And who doesn’t like creamy dreamy soup???
Hidden Oatmeal Vegetable Soup for a win!!
Omg!! Let me tell you how easy it is to make this veggie-loaded soup. All you have to do is dump all the ingredients in your pressure cooker/Instant pot and cook it without even monitoring it. Once the soup cools down then blitz it in the blender until smooth and creamy.
This soup is a complete meal with the goodness of oats, veggies, and seasoning. I am sure it will be added to your menu once a week.
My kids love this soup with a side of grilled cheese or topped with croutons.
I love to eat this soup with some seed crackers on the side for a quick healthy lunch/dinner.
Makes great leftovers
Leftover stays good in the fridge for up to 3 days and freezer for 2 months.
