One-Pot Savory Steel Cut Oats

This Asian-Style One-Pot Savory Steel Cut Oats recipe is a great way to incorporate healthy vegetables into your breakfast routine.  You can make a big batch and eat it for the next several days. I placed a fried egg on top, but if you are a vegan feel free to omit the egg.

  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 large red onion chopped
  • 1 red/green bell pepper chopped
  • 1 zucchini chopped
  • 1 cup broccoli chopped
  • 1/2 cup carrots chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic peeled and pressed through a garlic press
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger grated
  • 1 cup Shiitake mushrooms
  • 1 cup edamame beans
  • 1 cup steel cut oats* I used McCann's Irish Steel Cut Oats
  • 2 tablespoon black or white sesame seeds
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons miso paste
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha Sauce optional
  • 1/4 cup green onions chopped
  • 4 fried eggs optional


  • Heat sesame oil in a large pot with a lid (I used my Dutch oven) over medium heat. Add onions and peppers. Cook until wilted, 7-8 minutes.
  • Add zucchini, broccoli, and carrots, and cook, stirring frequently, until all vegetables are tender, 12-15 minutes.
  • Add garlic, mushrooms, and ginger. Cook for 2 more minutes.
  • Stir in the steel cut oats. Stirring constantly, toast them with all the vegetables, 3-4 minutes.
  • Stir in the sesame seeds, vegetable broth, soy sauce, miso paste, and Sriracha sauce (if using). Close it with the lid and cook for 15 minutes.
  • Stir in the edamame beans and cook for 5 more minutes.
  • Serve with chopped green onions, a fried egg (if using), and black sesame seeds on top.


Note: I have tried this recipe with Quaker's 3-min cook steel cut oats. It took less time to cook with them. However, I didn't like it as much as I liked the version I made with the Irish Steel Cut oats.
