Calling all mushrooms lovers!  This Miso Mushroom Bowl is not only plant-powered and highly nutritious, it is also full of delicious umami flavor. It’s filling and satisfying but leaves you feeling energized and light.

There are numerous research reports on the healing properties of mushrooms, especially when it comes to supporting our immune system. Mushrooms activate or stimulate macrophages in the immune system, a type of white blood cell that “eats” pathogens like bacteria, viruses and cancer cells.  So we’ve been amping up our mushroom intake the last few months, but not purely for health reasons- we happen to love them too!

Ingredients in A Mushroom Bowl

  • mushrooms-
  • brown rice
  • edamame
  • spinach
  • grated carrots
  • daikon radish
  • Cabbage
  • Avocado
  • Miso Ginger Dressing


How to make a Miso Mushroom Bowl:

Step One: Cook the Rice. The Miso Mushroom Bowl starts with setting the brown rice to cook.

TIP: Here’s a little trick I do to speed things up with short grain brown rice. Boil the rice like you would pasta- with ample water. Then cook the edamame in the rice water.

Drain the rice and let stand 5 minutes.

Step two: While the rice is cooking, saute the mushrooms.  Here I’m using portobellos- but feel free to use what you have. The important thing here is getting them nice and brown.

Step three: Prep the veggies. Slice the avocado, shred the carrots, diakon and cabbage.

Step four: Make the Dressing.

Miso Dressing:

The dressing is quite tasty, I’d recommend making a double batch to use on salads, later in the week. 😉

Simply blend the ingredients in a blender until smooth.

The dressing will keep up to 5 days in the fridge, but trust me, it won’t last that long- you’ll want to put it on everything!

This plant-based Miso Mushroom Bowl is served over a bed of warm brown rice, topped with healthy veggies and drizzled with the tastiest Sesame Miso Ginger Dressing (that you’ll want to put on everything)!  Vegan & Gluten-Free.


Units Scale
  • 1 cup short-grain brown rice, uncooked
  • 4 large portobello mushrooms, sliced int 1/2 inch slices.
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1 cup matchstick carrots (or grated)
  • 1 cup shredded daikon (or radishes) or cucumbers
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 cup edamame
  • 4 cups baby spinach
  • Garnish: Scallions, Sprouts, Sesame seeds

Miso Ginger Dressing: (Double for extra saucy) 


Set rice to cook. (see notes)

Cook Mushrooms: Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat, season the oil with salt and pepper and sear the mushrooms in 2 batches, browning each side. Set aside. (See notes for alternative method)

While the mushrooms are browning, prep the remaining veggies. 

Feel free to warm the edamame in the rice water (see photo).

Make the dressing: place everything in a blender and blend until smooth.

Assemble the bowls: Divide warm rice among bowls. (Shallow wide bowls work best here.) Top with a handful of baby spinach. Divide and arrange edamame, cabbage, carrots, daikon, avocado, and mushrooms. Top with scallions, sprouts, sesame seeds. Drizzle with Dressing.


The fastest way to cook rice to cook using the pasta method. Cook rice in 6 -8 cups salted boiling water, until tender, about 15 minutes. Strain and let stand in the strainer over the pot, 5 minutes until fully drained.

If you would rather roast the portobello mushrooms, double the dressing and use some as a marinade, coating the mushrooms well, place them on a parchemt-lined sheet pan and roast at 400F until tender. The cabbage is also very tasty roasted- I’d add more because it will shrink. 😉

  1. Thank you Sylvia! It’s freezing cold in New York city today and this bowl was simply perfect! Love the dressing too.

  2. so easy to make and full of flavor. Made it twice last week. I also added a few extra pickled veggies and pickled ginger. Love all your recipes.

  3. Simple, easy, delicious.
    Your recipes are incredible.

    I also like to quick pickle carrots or beets with this recipe!
    Thank you!


  4. This was so yummy, we had it two nights in a row. Just a tip – this dressing goes farther than you’d think. Stir it up a little before adding more. We wound up with puddles in the bottom of the bowl due to misjudging this. Delicious! Thanks for sharing.

  5. My mom cannot stop raving about these bowls 🙂 I made them for us last night and they were a hit. The dressing is absolutely delightful–I ate the leftover dressing with plain rice and I couldn’t get enough of it. Will definitely be making this again.

  6. LOVE this recipe. The Miso Ginger dressing is so delicious! Such a refreshing, bright and nourishing meal! Thanks for another great recipe. Sissy

  7. The miso dressing is seriously so good, I could drink it. I usually don’t like sesame oil. But it’s all perfectly balance. Would work well on any green crunchy salad.

  8. I have made this amazing recipe twice – can definitely see this becoming a go-to meal! Super easy and I found the ingredients for the miso dressing were staples in my pantry. I added some quick pickles and kimchi. So good!!!

    1. It’s so funny that I’m reading your post right now because I am waiting… for the portabellos to finish roasting so I can get it on the table! Added some snow peas, and no spinach, so arugula. What kind of pickles?

  9. I made this for dinner tonight and without exaggeration, it was one of the best meals I’ve ever had! I followed the recipe as per the instructions, it was simple to make and so pretty to look at. Thank you again Sylvia! Every recipe I’ve tried has been a winner. I’ve told all my friends about your blog and everyone who has checked it out is as happy as I am about finding your blog. Everyone, please do make a double recipe of the dressing, you will not regret it.

  10. My husband and I are not big fans of mushrooms. Due to their extraordinary health benefits we have been forcing ourselves to eat them. We tried this recipe for our endeavor. We can agree without reservation this might be one of the best tasting bowls we’ve ever had!! Highly recommend this!

  11. Loved it! You’ll want extra sauce for other dishes. It’s now a new favorite sauce. I plan on making this dish again soon and varying the veggies so it will be a whole other meal. Thank you once again Sylvia.

  12. Loving all of your recipes so far. Your site is a cooks dream come true! I never have to wonder if the flavors are all going to come together. Loving this bowl recipe!
    Thank you Sylvia for such beautiful recipes and photos!

  13. It’s all about the sauce and the seared mushrooms with this one. So delicious. I also gave the cabbage, spinach, and carrots a quick dip in hot water to warm and soften them up. Will definitely be making this one again– thanks Sylvia!

  14. So delicious. My partner just said this is the best nourish bowl I’ve ever made (and we make them almost once a week). That dressing!!!! 10/10

    1. You can use a regular grater, or something like an Asian style hand grater (found at Asian Markets).

  15. Loved the mushroom miso bowl! So did the whole family 🙂
    Where did you get the bowls you used for this recipe? Thank you for your wonderful recipes, they have become a part of our weekly dinners that my daughter and I now have time to prep together.

    1. Hi Christine- glad you liked the bowl. We will be selling them at our Bowl and Pitcher Store (Shop link on the home page) soon- they are being handmade for us right now!
