Jade Rice Congee with Shiitake Mushrooms
By :Meals in a Jar Cookbook by Pamela Ellgen
Print Recipe
Jade rice gets its gorgeous green hue from bamboo juice. Although the color fades somewhat during cooking, it imparts a subtly sweet flavor and lovely creamy texture to congee, an Asian-style rice porridge. It is complemented by the umami richness of shiitake mushrooms and a hint of ginger and garlic. Jar size: 4 cups

    I made a slightly modified version of this, in that I used a preserved duck egg to flavor it, and used regular short grain rice instead of the Jade rice called for. It was tasty, but at the proportions given, it made a very thick (oatmealish) breakfast like congee, rather than the thick soupy consistency I was hoping for.

    The dried mushrooms were excellent.. I added some of that sweet Chinese sausage that is being made in California and which can be had at Oriental groceries here. Yummy!
