This is the best, creamiest Mushroom Congee with ginger, leek and cordyceps mushrooms for a meal that’s packed with health benefits and flavor.
What is Congee?
Congee is a traditional Chinese rice porridge. It can be plain, in which case you might load it up with toppings. Or it can be flavored, like this one, with mushroom powder, ginger, and garlic. Congee is often enjoyed for breakfast. It’s soft, creamy, comforting and so versatile.
Ingredients for Mushroom Congee
Here’s what you need for this comforting rice porridge with mushrooms:
Leek. You’ll only need the white part for this recipe. Keep the tops for veggie broth.
Ginger. For a healthy and peppery bite.
Garlic. Load up your congee with plenty of fresh garlic.
White rice. Use long-grain rice for creamy congee.
Mushroom powder. You can find this at well-stocked grocery stores and online. Or make your own by blending dried mushrooms in a food processor into a powder.
Veggie bouillon. For a ton of flavor with a single ingredient!
