“Bowls full of sticky, gray mush always bring me back to my parents’ home, where congee was on the table without fail every weekend of my childhood. This recipe is inspired by those mornings but instead of rice, I swapped in oats, which cook quicker and provide lasting energy. The result is a wholesome, hearty, decadently creamy dish laced with earthy notes. Taking a cue from Sohla El-Waylly, this recipe also includes quick pickled veggies to cut through the richness of fiber-packed oats with something slightly sweet and acidic. Either red or white miso will work here, but remember light-colored misos are also lighter in taste. If you’re good at planning ahead, soak the oats in a bowl of water the night before—this’ll cut down on their cook time tenfold.”
