Congee with Sauteed Greens Recipe

Congee with Sauteed Greens

Total Time: 20 minutes

Serves: 1

Congee, a savoury rice porridge, is a staple enjoyed in many parts of Asia. This hearty meal is often cooked with minced meat or seafood and needs more time to prepare than regular cooked rice because of a higher liquid-to-rice ratio.

Chef’s note:

Cooked with our Timur Chilli Crisp Topping, this Congee recipe can be served with a wide range of sides. Preserves such as pickled cucumber, pickled turnip, pickled white gourd, fermented bean curd, dried bamboo shoot, salted clam, salted duck egg, meat floss and fried bean sticks, all make for delicious flavour combinations.
