Cold morning? Want to try something different for breakfast? Congee, also known as jook, is worth trying. It’s a rice porridge base that is warm, nourishing, comfort food; variations are endless including adding medicinal herbs. Easiest way to make: in a crockpot (slow cooker). Put in raw ingredients the night before, add garnishes and enjoy in the morning. Most recipes are 1 part rice to 9 parts water, this makes more of a soupy consistancy. I like it thicker, more porridge and reduce the water to 6 or 7 parts.
