Spinach and oats soup

I have been wondering what to make for the ingredients listed in Design a Menu. I had most of the stuff listed, except apples. Also, I have been thinking of feeding Yashi some spinach, since she mostly eats fluids / mashed stuff, I had thought of making soup. And I finally designed a menu!

My menu-
Spinach and oats soup
Bhindi Stir fry
Toor daal with bottle gourd
Banana halwa or apple/banana kheer - (I have never tried any, but I have a banana halwa recipe from a Mallu friend)

Presenting here is my appetizer- Spinach and oats soup

1 tbsp refined oil
1 onion chopped
1/4 cup oats (I used Quaker instant oats)
3 cups spinach boiled with 3/4 cup water and blended / pureed
whipped cream for garnish - optional
salt and pepper to taste

Heat the oil, stir in the onion and saute for 2 minutes until they turn pink. Stir in the oatmeal and chopped spinach and cook, uncovered, for 5 mins, stirring occasionally. Then stir in the cream and season with salt and pepper. Serve.

My menu tonight-
Spinach and oats soup
Whole wheat garlic breadsticks
Daliya khichdi
