Miso Glazed Mushrooms

When I crave mushrooms, I crave THESE mushrooms. Miso Glazed Mushrooms!

I’ve been craving them for some time now. Mostly because of how savoury they are, rich in umami flavours with all the miso that’s in them. But what I really like about the recipe, is that it is ready in under 30!

With less than 10 steps, and a short list of ingredients, this Miso Glazed Mushrooms is one of my favourite Delicious Easy Meals! It’s a simple tasty recipe, quick to prepare, and hits right on the cravings!

Let’s talk cooking!

The recipe for these Miso Glazed Mushrooms is quite simple. With a few ingredients, and less than 10 steps, this bowl is my ultimate escape for when I’m craving a quick savoury and fulfilling dish. The mushrooms are cooked in 2 stages: boiling, then searing in a pan with the glaze. I find that boiling them first allows the mushrooms to soak up the sauce with all the flavours, while keeping the texture soft yet not too chewy.

I’ve split the steps in the pictures below to best guide you through the recipe. Let’s begin!


You’ll need about 2 cups of small whole mushrooms for this recipe. If there are larger ones, chop them in halves. Wash them well and set aside to boil. They will then be seared off in a pan with the rest of the plants, seasonings, and glaze.

Other Plants

This recipe calls for other fragrant, crunchy, and herby plants as well.  You’ll need sweet onion and garlic, which adds great flavour to the mushrooms. The red cabbage adds a bit of a crunch to the dish. You can also garnish the dish with some parsley and green onion. Use fresh lemon juice for the glaze, but if you only have bottled juice, that will do too!

Besides these ingredients, you’ll also need a few more for the glaze and a few other for the pan/side. These are:

Miso Glaze

  • Miso Paste
  • Light Soy Sauce
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Water
  • Cornstarch

The Rest

  • Neutral Oil
  • Vegan Butter
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Sesame Seeds
  • Cooked Rice


Boiling the mushrooms

Start by boiling those mushrooms. Bring water to a boil in a medium pot, filling it half way. Once it starts boiling, add in the mushroom and boil (uncovered) for about 10 minutes, stirring it frequently. Once they’ve softened, remove them from the heat, drain the water, and slightly rinse it under cold water. Set aside to be added to the pan later.

Searing in Pan

In the meantime, heat a tablespoon of neutral oil with vegan butter in a pan, over medium-high heat. Sauté the diced onion and the garlic cloves for 2-3 minutes. Add in the cooked mushrooms, salt and pepper, stir and sear them for about 5 minutes on each side.

Glazing the Mushrooms

In a small ball, whisk the sauce ingredients, and slowly add it to the mushrooms. Stir them around until the sauce thickens and the mushrooms are all glazed up!

Finishing off

Add in the shredded red cabbage and toss around until soften, yet still crispy. About 2-3 minutes. Finish it off with some sesame seeds. Remove from heat and plate up!

Serve the mushrooms over a bed of white rice. Garnish with parsley and green onion, and add some more lemon juice over those mushrooms. After a long time craving a good bowl of mushrooms, this one surely is worth the wait!

These Miso Glazed Mushrooms are super quick and super easy to make. They’re savoury, fulfilling, and extra delicious! Plus it’s ready in under 30 minutes. So go on and grab the recipe below!
