Miso Mushroom Oat Porridge

Hi friends! Are you sometimes bored with your (same old) oatmeal?

Then you’ve got to try this creamy and savory Miso Mushroom Oat Porridge. It’s super hearty and can be an excellent breakfast idea.

Insanely easy to prepare with simple ingredients. Oats are a great source of carbs and I added green peas for the protein.

Miso imparts this delicious umami/savory flavor to this porridge. I also drizzled a liberal amount of chili oil to make it spicy (tastes awesome!)

Let’s go! 🙂

  • Set a cooking pot over medium heat. Add olive oil.
  • Once it's hot, add garlic + onion and stir-sauté for 2-3 minutes, or until they're translucent.
  • Add mushrooms and stir-cook for 4-6 minutes, or until they're dark and reduced.
  • Add salt + pepper and stir-cook for 1 minute. Then reserve around 3-4 tablespoons of mushrooms and set aside.
  • Next, add green peas and stir-cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Then add instant oat + water and mix well. Cover the pot and let it cook for 4-5 minutes over low-medium heat, or until the oat is cooked and creamy.
  • In the meantime, mix miso paste + hot water. Make sure the miso is dissolved.
  • Once the oat is cooked, turn off the heat. Pour the miso water into the pot along with toasted sesame oil + chili oil + green onion. Mix well.
  • And that's it. Savory miso mushroom oat porridge is ready! Transfer to serving bowl(s) and top it up with reserved mushrooms + toasted sesame seeds + chili oil + green onions. Enjoy!


  1. You can also use rolled oats (instead of instant oats), but you'll have to adjust the cooking time accordingly. 
  2. You can also use multiple veggies like green beans, carrots, zucchini, broccoli, etc.

  1. Amazing recipe! Beautiful blend of savory and spicy.

    I sadly didn’t have any miso paste this morning, so substituted in Better than Bouillon seasoned veggie base and a splash of fish sauce for a little funk (sorry, not vegan!). I also used quick cook steel cut oats because I prefer their texture.
