Brotchan Roy - Irish Leek and Oat Soup

     Welcome to the August 2020's edition of Soup Saturday Swappers! This even is hosted by Sneha of Sneha's Recipes and she challenged us to make a soup with oats. At first I didn't know what to think of soup with oats, but wanting to join in the fun I started researching something I could make.  After trying it I don't have enough good things to say. It was delicious. 

     This soup, called Brotchan Roy, is Irish. It is a rich and delectable dish that achieves that with just a few simple ingredients. The oats make it hearty and thick while the chicken broth and cream make it savory and rich. It's a meal that is economical, easy, quick, and so very delicious.
