Ingredients

  1. 1 cup water
  2. 1/2 cup quick-cooking rolled oats, such as McCann's Irish Oatmeal
  3. Cooking spray
  4. 1 extra-large egg
  5. 1/3 cup fresh shiitake mushrooms, diced
  6. 1-1/2 teaspoons soy sauce, plus more for drizzling
  7. 1/4 teaspoon Sriracha
  8. 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  9. 1 tablespoon chopped scallions, white and light green parts only

Directions

  1. Bring 1 cup water to a boil. Stir in rolled oats and cook, stirring frequently, over medium heat until thickened and creamy, about 1-1/2 minutes. Cover oats; remove from heat.
  2. Heat a small frying pan over medium heat; coat evenly with cooking spray. Crack egg into pan and fry about 3 minutes, or until whites become opaque and yolk is slightly set, but still runny.
  3. Remove egg and set aside; add diced shiitake mushrooms and cook 2-3 minutes until soft.
  4. Add soy sauce and Sriracha to oatmeal; stir to combine. Transfer oats to a bowl and top with diced shiitake mushrooms and fried egg. Drizzle with sesame oil and soy sauce; top with chopped scallions.
