Rice Porridge

Rice gone mushy from too much water in the rice cooker?  No problem!

Just take all that rice, put in a large pot on the stove.  Add 2-4 cups of water to the pot, depending on how chunky or smooth you like it.  In this particular rice porridge, I added one chicken bouillon cube for every cup of water. 

However, you can make this vegetarian with veggie stock instead of water and bouillon cubes. 

Let simmer on low for several minutes until you get the consistency seen on the right. -------->

Top with whatever ingredients you like, the rice porridge absorbs any flavors you add. 

I topped this porridge with green onions, cilantro, soy sauce drizzle, seven spice mix, red chili flakes. 

You can also add meat, veggies, etc. into the pot to simmer before serving if you like.

You can also use this same method with day old rice!

This dish is perfect for a cold, rainy afternoon such as the one today.
