Sweet Potato Congee Recipe

Being down this weekend with a cold, I decided to make myself a congee.  My recipe turned out well, so saving it here!

– 1 teaspoon of ginger
– 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil
– 2 cups of Trader Joes Brown Rice Medley (with daikon radish seeds!)
– 4 cups of water
– 2 small white sweet potatoes

Chop up the ginger into tiny bits. Peel and cube the sweet potatoes. I usually shortcut by boiling water in an electric kettle then add to my 4 qt dutch oven.  Add the rest into the dutch oven at medium or medium-high temp until boiling.  Then reduce to simmer and cover for 1-2 hrs until the water is slightly porridge-y but the rice itself still has shape.  Serve with typical sides like spicy baked tofu, bamboo shoots in chili oil, pickled cucumber, etc.
