  • Total Time 1 h 30 min
  • Serves: 8

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil, divided 45 mL
  • 1 tbsp minced fresh ginger 15 mL
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced and divided
  • ¾ cup uncooked white long grain rice, rinsed 175 mL
  • 2 ½ cups reduced sodium chicken broth 625 mL
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce, divided 45 mL
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar 30 mL
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup frozen corn, thawed 250 mL
  • 1 lb broccolini or broccoli 500 g
  • 2 green onions, finely sliced
  • 2 tbsp Sriracha hot sauce 30 mL

Directions

  • Step 1

    Heat 2 tbsp (30 mL) oil in large saucepan set over medium heat. Stir in ginger and half the garlic; cook 2 min. until fragrant. Add rice. Cook, stirring, 1 min. to coat.

  • Step 2

    Add 3 ½ cups (875 mL) water, chicken broth, 2 tbsp (30 mL) soy sauce and the rice vinegar; bring to a boil, stir and reduce heat to low. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, 55 min. to 1 hr. until rice is the consistency of oatmeal. Stir in corn. Cook, uncovered, stirring frequently, 3 min. Slowly pour thin stream of eggs into the rice, stirring constantly about 2 min., until congee is creamy. Cover.

  • Step 3

    Heat remaining 1 tbsp (15 mL) oil in large skillet set over medium-high heat. Cook remaining garlic 1 min. Add broccolini (if using, broccoli, keep stems intact but trim off tough peels; cut bunches lengthwise into long, thin pieces) and reduce heat to medium. Add 3 tbsp (45 mL) water and remaining soy sauce. Cook, covered, 4 to 5 min. until tender-crisp.

  • Step 4

    Stir congee and divide into 8 bowls. Top with broccolini, green onions and Sriracha sauce.
