A toothsome broth of sautéed vegetables and oats cooked simply with water, and seasoned with salt and pepper. Comforting and sumptuous, this Oats and Vegetable Broth is very nutritious too. The vegetables provide an abundant supply of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that reduces free-radical damage, slowing the onset of heart diseases, cancer and other age-related degenerative diseases. By using fibre-rich oats, we do away with traditional refined flour thickeners, making this broth all the more healthier.

   Yes you can, but cook and add it at step 4 and avoid step 3.

%age of carbohydrates is on higher side in comparison to protein and fibre which isn''t perfect for diabetics.

   Dear Jasbir - 9.3 gm of carbohydrate is fine to be added in a diabetics diet, especially when that little carbohydrate is from oats which is also a good source of fibre and it aids in controlling blood sugar levels.
