Don't be put off by the oats - this is a delicious thick tomato soup made with garlic and fresh coriander. Use vegetable stock if you want to make this vegetarian.
Used different ingredients. I have made this dozens of times, adding mushrooms, sweetcorn, peas, peppers and even white beans. I used vegetable stock to make it veggie. I also think that this recipes benefits from a good dash of worcestershire sauce - 21 Apr 2009
I have just made this soup and it has turned out well. I started with the oats in the pan and then added the vegetables (I also added red pepper that needed using up) and cooked them for a while before adding the stock. I blitzed it all at the end and it tastes good! Would definitely use it again for a quick, healthy soup for lunch on a cold day. - 03 Jan 2012
This is possibly one of the most disgusting things that I have ever tasted! It’s like tomato and onion porridge! Garlic and oats should not be in the same recipe together! Mine went in the bin. If you want to incorporate oats into your diet, stick with porridge (made with milk not tomatoes!!) - 12 Jan 2010
