COOKING TOOLS Medium sauce pot


ESTIMATED COOKING TIME Active time: 30 minutes

Total time: 30 minutes

Serves 2-3

INGREDIENTS 1 cup of leftover or cooked rice

1 cups of water or chicken stock

3 slices of ginger - if you want to get fancy, slice again to make long thin julienne sticks

1 clove of garlic (optional)

1 scallion chopped for garnish - you can save any for more congee tomorrow

1 egg


Soy sauce

Sesame oil

DIRECTIONS Combine the rice, water (or chicken stock), ginger and optional clove of garlic in a pot. Bring to a boil and then simmer. Stir frequently as to not have the rice stick to the bottom. Add more liquid if needed. Once the rice comes together, add salt and white pepper to taste.

Serve with an over easy egg or scramble. Add soy sauce and a couple drops of sesame oil. Garnish with scallions.

NOTES Can also be served with almost any protein, vegetable or whatever you feel like eating. Cause you know. It’s rice. :)
