Shelves are bare? Here is a quick and inexpensive soup recipe you can make with ingredients you almost always have on hand. Rolled oats are added to canned tomatoes, chopped onion, and crushed garlic.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1 onion, chopped
- 3 cloves crushed garlic
- 3 1/2 tablespoons margarine
- 1 (14.5 ounce) can stewed tomatoes
- 4 cups water
- salt and pepper to taste
- 3/4 cup rolled oats
In a skillet, saute onion and garlic in butter, until onion becomes tender and begins to brown.
Add undrained tomatoes, water, salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer.
While soup is simmering, toast rolled oats in a heavy bottomed sauce pan, stirring till they are brown. Stir in oats to soup and cook for about 6 to 10 minutes, and then serve.
