Brown Rice Congee
“Switch up the usual Teochew-style porridge by using brown rice instead of white to amp up dietary fibre and B vitamins. Opt for braised tofu instead of the usual salted sides and add some leafy bok choy for an iron boost,” advises Edna Loh, Dietitian and Nutrigenomics Practitioner at The Beacon Laureate.
200 g brown rice 150 g tofu 3 tbsp soy sauce (to braise the tofu) 1 bunch of bok choy
Chopped spring onions to garnish Salt and pepper to taste
Boil the brown rice in about 230ml of water or vegetable stock. Lower heat and let simmer until it turns into a thick porridge. In a pan, simmer the tofu in the soy sauce until heated through. Place the tofu on top of the congee and garnish with the boiled bok choy and chopped spring onions. Serve immediately.
