Warm and gentle on the stomach. Congee is the most comforting breakfast food. It is served unseasoned accompanied by Pickled Cucumbers, fried eggs, soy sauce tofu, salted fried peanuts, or maybe even leftovers from last night’s dinner.
Can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. This is a great dish to make when you are low on ingredients at home yet still want a nutritious meal. I only used three ingredients: bok choy (or any chopped greens), leftover Mushrooms, and leftover rice porridge. Measurements below don’t have to be exact but just remember to add enough water or stock so the rice doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot.
These pickles are savory and sweet. This is a side dish that goes well with congee, a rice porridge that is eaten for breakfast. For best results, look for cucumbers with crisp and nearly seedless interiors.
