In a pot on medium heat, add in rolled oats, soft tofu, tamari or soy sauce, miso paste and 1 cup of vegetable stock.

Step 2

Use a potato masher or a fork and crush soft tofu and mix well with the oats in the vegetable stock and bring to a boil. Once it is boiling, lower to a simmer and continue to stir with a wooden spoon or spatula. Continue to stir for about 3-5 minutes until oats are cooked and desired consistency is reach. Add in more vegetable stock as you go if mixture gets too thick, 1/4 cup at a time.
