Recipe for chinese rice in our easy ethnic recipes collection.
Cooking time: 40 minutes
Congee, or jook, is a rice porridge that is commonly eaten for breakfast in China. Basic congee is very simple to make. In a deep saucepan, combine 1 cup short-grain rice and 8 cups cold water. Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat. Simmer for about 1 1/2 hours, stirring every now and then to keep rice from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Just about anything can be added to congee, from veggies and meat to dried fruit and nuts. To quickly spice up this basic recipe, try topping it with chopped scallions and fresh, thinly sliced ginger.
