Oatmeal & Kabocha Squash Steamed Bread

This was adapted from the recipe Oatmeal and Cinnamon Steamed Bread . I made it to use up some leftover kabocha squash. You can use the oatmeal as is, but the texture will become moist and chewy if you take the trouble to pulverize it into a powder. You can prevent condensation from dripping onto the buns by wrapping the steamer lid in cloth, and fixing it with a rubber band. (Don t let the cloth catch on fire!) Recipe by Miyakojika


  1. 100 grams Oatmeal
  2. 150 grams Peeled and boiled kabocha squash
  3. 100 ml Additive-free soy milk
  4. 100 ml Water

  6. 1/3 tsp Natural Salt
