Spicy Oatmeal Soup with Mustard Greens

As I was getting ready to post this recipe, it occurred to me that I had already shared my method for making oatmeal soup a few months ago. 
However, as I said in that post I don't follow a recipe so it's never quite the same.  I decided that I would share today's 'recipe' just to show how it can be made slightly differently.
Here's what I did today...

I sautéed a chopped red onion, chopped garlic and chopped Thai Bird chilies in some coconut oil

I added a can of small-cut tomatoes (14oz)

Some steel cut oats

And some veggie broth and Celtic sea salt.  Brought it all up to a boil and then simmered until the oats were softened (20 mins. or so)

A few mins. before serving, I stirred in some washed, sliced mustard greens and simmered for maybe 3 more minutes.

The finished product!!
