I was wondering what everyone though on whether cereal is considered a soup or a stew.

Soup Definition: a liquid dish, typically savoury and made by boiling meat, fish, or vegetables etc. in stock or water.

Stew Definition: a dish of meat and vegetables cooked slowly in liquid in a closed dish or pan.


Personally I think that cereal is a soup. Considering the fact that by definition a soup is a liquid dish, which most cereals would have milk, while it misses out on the typical meat or vegetables. Whereas a stew is meat and vegetables slowly cooked in liquid. So I guess you could also consider cereal a stew, since some people microwave their cereal with the milk. But idk what does everyone else think.

If we had to describe it as either, cereal would be closer to a soup, due to the fact that the difference between them is the fact that soup is completely liquified in most cases, whereas stews can be much thicker and heartier if you well.

Hence, cereal, if it had to be either, would be a soup.
