Jade Rice Congee with Shiitake Mushrooms
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
