This savory Asian oat bran is simmered with spices and topped with sautéed shiitake mushrooms, and fried eggs, and garnished with sriracha. It’s the perfect savory breakfast twist to traditional oat bran.
This savory Asian oat bran is the perfect breakfast or brunch meal to wake up your tastebuds in the morning.
Sometimes we all get in a breakfast rut, eating the same basic things every morning.
Well, it’s time to turn up the flavor!
With savory soy sauce, onion, garlic, spicy sriracha, and meaty mushrooms, these bowls of savory Asian oat bran are packed full of flavor!
And since it has tons of fiber, you’ll stay fuller for longer and won’t have a mid-morning sugar crash.
Trust me, you’re going to love this savory oat bran!
Ingredients for savory Asian oat bran
- Oat bran – This is a hot cereal packed with tons of fiber to help keep you full through your morning.
- Water and milk – Water and milk are the liquids that will cook our oat bran.
- Onion powder and garlic powder – Classic flavors that add a subtle earthiness.
- Eggs – This is our protein for our breakfast dish.
- Shiitake mushrooms – These mushrooms have a savory flavor and meaty texture.
- Sesame oil and soy sauce – These are classic Asian flavors that will complement our dish.
- Toppings – I’ve chosen sliced green onions, sesame seeds, and sriracha. But feel free to use your favorite!
One of the best parts of oat bran is how easy it is to prepare for your week ahead.
Delicious breakfasts don’t have to take a ton of time in the morning if you properly prep ahead!
You could totally make a big batch of oat bran at the beginning of the week, keep it stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator and then reheat portions as needed throughout the week.
These savory Asian oat bran bowls can be customized just the way you like.
Keep it super spicy with a hefty drizzle of sriracha and red pepper flake!
Or, keep it sweet and green by just using the sliced green onions.
Another favorite topping I love using on these bowls is furikake.
Furikake is a dry Japanese condiment that consists of sesame seeds, seaweed, salt, sugar, and other spices. It’s crunchy and complex!
Storage and leftovers
Lastly, leftover cooked oat bran can be stored separately in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
I like to cook eggs and mushrooms freshly if available.
