Chinese Congee Rice Soup (Jook) Recipe
1/2 cup short-grained rice
1/2 cup glutinous rice
6 cups Chinese chicken broth, or
6 cups regular chicken broth with 2 tablespoons soy sauce and 1 slice ginger the size of a quarter
Wash rice. Place in pot with Chinese chicken broth, or regular chicken broth to which soy and ginger has been added.
Bring to a boil. When boiling, reduce heat to low. Cook for 2 hours, partially covered, stirring frequently. Soup is done when it reaches a porridge-like consistency. Remove ginger slice if you have added it.
You can add chopped bok choy, or small slivers of chicken. Leftover turkey after a Thanksgiving meal is another great addition, and a turkey carcass can provide a nice broth instead of chicken soup.
