What is Congee?

Congee is a rice porridge commonly consumed in Asian cuisine. It is easy on digestion and provides many health benefits. Though it takes a long time to cook, it is a highly versatile recipe and can be a solid foundation for creating a variety of meals.

People who have digestive difficulties may enjoy congee with minimal complications. With congee, rice is soft and more easily broken down. The body has to expend less energy for it to absorb the nutrients. And because it is slow-cooked on low heat, congee is able to retain most of its nutritional value.
