CongeeIt’s time to talk about congee.
Congee is a rice soup, easy to cook and versatile. Either sweet or salted, it will depend depends on the toppings you’ll add.

The super easy recipe.
Bring 1 cup of long rice and 10 cups of water to boil, then go back to low heat and let it cook for at least 1 hour. The rice will cook and disintegrate to creamy soup.

The toppings: salty or sweet ?
Salty congee.
I love the bamboo shoots, shiitake mushrooms and natural peanuts then I add a dash of soy sauce.
You can also top it with shredded chicken, fish or pork.Congee

Sweet congee.
Add nuts, cranberries, azukis brand and dry fruits, then add a dash of honey.

Congee is great for your stomach and spleen. It’s also perfect if you are feeling sick or just want to detox.

Big bonus, you can store it up to 2 weeks in your fridge! Perfect for the breakfast or lunch at the office.
