Oats vegetable soup is perfect for weight-loss and it is also diabetic friendly. Oats have low glycemic index, it can help maintain low glucose levels. There is always a myth among most of the people i know that oats recipes are not that tasty . Try this soup 😋 you will change your view. Oats cooked with milk gives a rich creamy taste and texture. I make upma , dosa, idly , kichidi with oats.
I used milk in this soup if you are making this for weight loss then reduce the milk quantity or use fat free milk. Oats become sticky upon cooking so i prefer dry roasting them before cooking.
