1 large onion
1 big clove of garlic
6 tbsp oats
1 litre chicken stock
1 pinch nutmeg
1 sprig of thyme
1 bay leaf

Why it's so good...
It's a light but nourishing. Oats are very simple but full of vitamins and fibre. You can make it in advance and re-heat in the microwave. Add a bit of soy sauce for extra flavour.
