congee




Soupy rice never sounded so good. The whole idea of mushy rice always sang the tune of 'cooked wrong' until I discovered congee. My first experience with this was about 10 years ago when I worked with these two guys who would bring it from home and it looked so good I bought some in a can. The canned version is not bad but they did laugh at me telling me it was so easy to make and I should make the good stuff. I eventually learned how and life has never been the same since. I made this with octopus and wild mushrooms with fresh ginger. It was more soupy but by the time I got around to taking the picture it was a little more dense. Remember this place, it has some of the best congee, I recommend all of them.

I have had congee several times and I really like it...although, I just call it porridge. Makes me feel like Goldilocks!

Okay, as a woman that wouldn't eat any kind of rice at all, cause it reminded me of maggots, until I lived in Hawaii. My first ex was from there and I finally tried rice.

Sorry honey, but this looks like magots swimming, and I highly doubt if I could ever taste it, but maybe if YOU make it for me, I might???
