I'm making jook (aka congee) for breakfast today using David Lebovitz's recipe. It's not quite ready as I type this, I"m trying to let the falvours get to know one another as Lebovitz suggests in his recipe.
This is a very exciting breakfast option for me. I like the idea of porridge, jook is essentially a rice porridge, but I'm not a huge fan of sweet things and especially not in the morning. I've added frozen peas, dried mushrooms and garlic scapes to my jook, just stuff I had on hand. It's a shame that I didn't go out and get some ginger and dried shrimp but if this goes well then those can be for next weeks batch.
It's a big recipe so in a perfect world I could make this Monday morning and then have it for the rest of the week.
Here's a picture of its process.
I really hope I've found a solution for breakfast. I've been eating cream cheese and cucumber sandwiches for the past six months. Time for a change.
