Big Blue Bowl of Congee


It has been awhile since I had Chinese rice congee in my big blue bowl. Rice congee is a type of rice porridge/soup eaten in many Asian countries.

In this instance, I had mixed meat congee with a sliced Chinese donut (not sweet) on top.  I had a side dish of noodles with veggies, seafood and chinese mushrooms. I got these dishes from the restaurant in my building on one recent, cold and rainy day.  The congee hit the spot and the blue bowl is always my favourite as it is just the perfect size to have a generous serving without things spilling over.


Thanks for joining me on Blue Monday.

Hip Chick, have you tried congee before? If not, try it as it is delicious. I always try to experiment with the different foods of many cultures congregated here in my city.

Regina, the soup is delicious. You must have some Asian restaurants where you live that would serve this. Try it and let me know what you think.

Such a lovely bowl and such an interesting soup... I haven't tried many real Asian dishes, I guess the ones served at restaurants in Europe are nothing like the real stuff!
