Congee (Rice Porridge) with Minced Pork and Crispy Shallots

Soothing and delicious. [Photograph: Yvonne Ruperti]

Notes: You can also start with cooked rice, adding chicken broth and adjusting the amount of liquid to achieve the desired consistency. Make sure to stir while rice is cooking so it doesn't burn on bottom of pot. When the rice has swelled, I mash it a bit to help it break down. There are many variations on this dish such as those that include sliced fish, egg, century egg, and hot chilies. Leftovers can be reheated.
