Congee Recipe

A comforting Chinese rice pudding.

Ingredients

4 cups chicken stock
5 cups water
1 cup jasmine rice
5 slices ginger
Salt to taste
Sliced green onion for garnish (optional)

Directions

Step 1: In a large pot, combine stock, water, rice and ginger. Bring to boil over high heat. When it starts to boil, cover partially and reduce heat to maintain simmer.

Step 2: Cook, stirring occasionally at the beginning and more frequently near the end, until it becomes a runny porridge, about 1 hour. Discard ginger. Season with salt.

Step 3: Serve hot sprinkled with green onion.
