Miso Oat Porridge

I love oats in bakes like cookies & muffins but I never like oat porridge since I am a kid! Guess I was traumatized by the breakfast served by the hospital when I was admitted for very high fever hahaha…For that 3-4 days stayed, I never touched that huge bowl of cold and yucky oat porridge after one spoonful >.<" 

But today this serving of savory miso oat porridge is going to change my perceptive! ^0^ I was still feeling skeptical and thought I'm crazy to try out this recipe since I never like oat porridge at all! Thank goodness it turns out wholesomely good! :D It tasted nutty and creamy with a touch of miso flavour which I like :D Give it a try today and see whether you like this miso oat porridge as much as me! ^.*

Recipe inspired by 101Cookbook
Ingredient 2-3 servings

Mushroom & Ikan Bilis Stock
  • 2 dried shitake mushroom, rinsed
  • 1/3 cup dried ikan bilis, rinsed
  • 4 cups water

Place all ingredients in a pot and bring to boil. Lower heat and simmer for 20 mins. Strain stock. Discard ikan bills and reserve the shitake mushroom*.

Miso Oat Porridge
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 80gm regular rolled oats
  • 4 cups mushroom & ikan bills stock
  • 2 tsp miso paste
  • 1 tbsp chopped spring onion
  • reserved mushroom, sliced
  • 200gm salmon fillet, sliced into 2-3 slabs (seasoned lightly with salt & black pepper)
  • toasted sesame seeds for garnishing

Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan. Add in rolled oats and stir fry for 2 mins until toasted and fragrant. Pour in stock and bring to boil. Add in mushroom and simmer on low heat for 7-10 mins until the oat mixture is creamy. Add more stock if desired if the consistency is too thick for your liking.  Stir in 1/2 tbsp spring onion. Remove pot from heat.

Ladle 2 heaps tbsp of oat porridge into a clean bowl. Stir in miso paste evenly and pour back this mixture into the pot of oat porridge. Stir evenly. Adjust taste accordingly by adding more miso paste but 2 tsp taste just right for me ^.*

Pan-fried salmon fillet in a non-stick pan until cook. Ladle some oat porridge onto a serving plate. Top with a slice of salmon, garnish with sliced mushroom, spring onion and sesame seeds. Serve immediately!
