4 healthy portions Easy
Total: Active:
PREVIOUS: Vegan Cream of Spinach Soup NEXT: Cream of Mushroom Soup

Ingredients (8)

  • 2 Medium Onions (Chopped into medium small pieces)
  • 1 Cup Oatmeal
  • 2 Cups Water, or Chicken/Vegetable stock
  • 1/2 - 1 Cup Milk or Cream (I actually used powdered milk)
  • 1/2 - 1 Cup Grated Cheese (Cheddar, Gouda, or Cheese of Choice)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Coarsely Ground Pepper
  • Salt to Taste
  • 1/4 Cup White Wine (Optional)

This delicious soup takes about 20 minutes to cook, is cheap to make and healthy. Combining the nuttiness of the oatmeal with the onion flavour, this soup provides a tasty comfort food that can reduce cholesterol too! Enhanced with cheese melted through will give portions of 3 food groups and no guilt involved. How much fat content in it is up to you through the choice of milk or cream, and cheese type. My cupboards were nearly bare when this soup was created and was inspired by porridge, believe it or not


  1. 1Sweat chopped onions and pepper in 1/4 cup of water/stock over medium heat
  2. 2When the water /stock has almost completely evaporated, add oatmeal and stir until oatmeal starts to turn slightly toasted in colour.
  3. 3Add remaining water, stir and simmer over low heat for 15 minutes.
  4. 4Stir occasionally.
  5. 5Add milk/cream (or more water if using powdered milk) until creamy and not too thick in consistency (use less if using wine).
  6. 6Add cheese and stir continuously until melted.
  7. 7Add salt to taste and serve
