Miso Oatmeal Bowl

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"A Japanese visitor said miso soup is a classic breakfast soup and I thought why not add oatmeal instead of tofu. Now it's a must each morning for me and much more satisfying than a green smoothie or sweet oatmeal!"

  1. Bring water to a boil in a saucepan; add oats and miso paste. Cook for about 1 minute. Add spinach, walnuts, and seaweed to oat mixture; cook, stirring occasionally, until oatmeal is desired consistency, about 5 minutes.
  2. Pour oatmeal into a bowl and top with avocado.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • I always use organic red miso paste, but you can use any miso paste available at most Asian markets or Whole Foods®. You may even add a bit of tofu just before serving for added protein.

I really liked the change of pace from sweet to savory. I added some frozen grilled corn kernels which I quickly microwaved and miso soup concentrate
