gluten free comfort food - Congee
while suffering from morning sickness this second time around, i decided to teach myself to make an all time favourite comfort food - Congee.
Congee is described as a type of rice porridge and is gentle on the stomach, but still tasty and comforting - great in winter!
To make congee, you take 1 part of white rice, to about 5 parts water, and pop both into a medium/large pot on a hot stove. Bring it up to boil and then turn it down to simmer. Stir regularly to avoid burning. The rice will take anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours to soften up and turn into a lovely warm soupy kind of thing.
Just before you take it off the stove, throw in some mince (beef is best) and slices of ginger and let it simmer until the mince is cooked. Top with diced shallots when serving. Yum!
