Omani Vegetable Soup

Add onions and butter to a large skillet; sauté until onions are translucent. Add carrots, potatoes, cabbage and three cups of water. Bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat and cook until vegetables are tender, about forty-five minutes. Remove skillet from heat and allow to cool. Add cooled mixture to a blender or food processor; puree until smooth. Return mixture to large skillet. In a bowl, combine oatmeal with one cup of water; stir into pureed vegetable mixture. Add tomato paste, ground cardamom, Bizar a'Shuwa, thyme leaves, bouillon cubes, coriander, bell pepper and two cups of water; bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about twenty minutes. Add salt and black pepper to taste; add more water if soup appears too thick. Ladle soup into bowls and garnish with lemon wedges.


Variation: Add cooked beef to soup for extra flavor.
