Inspiration for this Dish:
Because of my recent gallbladder surgery, I wasn’t able to eat any solid foods for quite a while, so I had to rely on oatmeal, and congee as my main source of nutrition. Being that I’m crave rice 99.9% of the time, I’ve been consuming various forms of congee. This is a recipe not in my normal arsenal of comfort congee recipes but rather a recipe derived from my need for flavor!
If you don’t like smoked duck, or are unable to find it at your local grocer. This can be made with any protein of your choice. I normally make this dish with minced pork and thousand year old egg!
- * 1 Stalk of Green Onion (Diced Finely)
- * ¼ of Chinese Green Cabbage or any Veggie of your choice, Sliced into 2 inch pieces or however you like
- * 1 Cup White Rice (Thai or Japanese Jasmine Preferred)
- * 4 Cups Water
- * 1 TSP White Pepper
- * ½ TSP Salt (You can add more if you like)
- * Medium Stock Pot or Any pot that can hold 4 Cups Water with at least 3 inches from the top
- Bring Water in Stock Pot to a Boil (High Heat)
- Once, water is boiling, reduce heat to Med/High and Add Rice
- Keep the Lid off and Stir Rice periodically
- Once it comes to a boil, Reduce Heat to Low
- Stirring periodically to avoid any rice from boiling over or sticking to the bottom of the pot
- Once you see the rice beginning to break down, and the water is no longer clear (has a white color)
- Add the smoked duck, and allow to simmer for another 10 minutes
- Add in the cabbage or veggie of choice, and simmer for 2-3 minutes
- Taste to see if additional Salt/Pepper is needed (the Smoke Duck adds quite a bit of salt)
- then Serve with a sprinkling of Green Scallion and Enjoy!
- Can substitute veggies or meat as you like
