‘Ojiya’ Egg Rice Porridge is what I want to eat when I am not well OR extremely tired. If I have some already cooked Rice, it is easy to prepare. If I don’t have any cooked Rice, Oats is the easiest substitute. I always season the soup very lightly when I am not well.


1 Serving


1 cup Chicken Stock *OR 1 cup Water & 1 teaspoon Asian Chicken Bouillon Powder
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon Soy Sauce *alter the amount
Salt & White Pepper
1/3 cup Quick Oats *OR Rolled Oats
1/2 Egg *whisked, you can add 1 Egg if you prefer
1/2 thin Spring Onion *finely chopped

  1. Place Chicken Stock in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Season with Soy Sauce, Salt and White Pepper. *Note: The amount of Salt depends on the saltiness of the Stock and your preference. I recommend to season the soup very lightly, particularly if you are not well.
  2. Add Quick Oats (OR Rolled Oats) and cook for a few minutes OR until Oats are soft. Add whisked Egg slowly in a circular motion into the porridge and let it softly cooked. Add Spring Onion and gently stir.
