A savory oatmeal that is filling and hearty. My favorite is to make this savory oatmeal with homemade bone broth or chicken broth, but it also works with vegetable broth. Try to use the best broth that you can find.
In a small saucepan on high heat, bring the broth to a boil. Add in the oats and turn down the heat. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
In the meantime, add a teaspoon of oil in a small fry pan and cook the shiitake mushrooms until softened. Set aside.
Add the spinach in the oatmeal and stir until wilted. Make a slight well in the middle of the oatmeal with a wooden spoon, and crack an egg (or two) in the well. Cover the saucepan and simmer for another 5-7 minutes, depending on how cooked like your egg.
Serve the oatmeal into a bowl and top with the shiitake mushrooms, scallions and a dash of Japanese mixed chili pepper powder.
