Tomato soup is something I always think of as a comfort food. Tomato Oats soup recipe is a delicious twist on this good old soup. This is a favorite in my aunt’s kitchen.
I wanted to use oats in my diet to include more fiber and use this tasty recipe to do that. This tomato oats soup recipe is loved by one and all at home including my 10-month-old!!
Vegetable broth gives a rich taste to this soup but if you don’t have it handy, you can even use water.

- You can use water instead of vegetable broth. I use vegetable broth for obvious reason that it adds more nutrients to the soup.
- My favorite go to brand of ready-made vegetable broth is the low sodium organic veg broth from Imagine, I get this if I don’t have time to make the broth at home.
- Cilantro leaves are optional and the soup color would remain red instead of green if you don’t use them.
- You can use any refined oil or vegetable oil if you don’t have olive oil in stock.
- My favorite brand for olive oil is Filippo Berio Olive Oil
