Anyone heard of or tried Oatmeal soup?

My wife went to pick up bagels the other day, and noticed the soup of the day was oatmeal soup. I never heard of this before. Has anyone ever tried it, and is it worth making ??

There are many variations on this soup. I would assume it would be pretty good, the oats acting like barley. We all need to eat our oats!

I would imagine it could be quite good, especially if steel-cut oats were used. Very much like barley. I love a good barley soup.

Hmmmm....sounds like something worth trying. I wouldn't use instant oats as the recipe suggests, though. I can't get steel-cut oats, but regular rolled oats should work.

I have used oats instead of barley in soup before, it wasn't bad at all, it was nice and I liked it.
