Congee - Comforting uplifter by Flower and Spice

The autumn is such a colorful lady. Full of golden and scarlet threads, full of life and gifts of the earth.

And since the house of Flower and Spice takes care of your skin using this gifts we decided to also take an intake on your soul. We are delighted to be able to share with you our recipes because we like to eat as clean as possible.
But here and there, we comfort ourselves with some guilty pleasures.
This weekend we made a super easy traditional chinese porridge with a bit of a twist. Our smooth rice base had a blast with some seasonal fruits and spices and we loved every single bite. It's simple it's fresh, it's mouth watering and its full of vitamins and happy thoughts.
And how did we make it?
The most important thing is the rice. This time we used basmati, but you can also used the black or brown rice. Remember – guilty pleasures:).


Fruit and Spices Congee
½ cup long grain rice, jasmine, basmati, brown or black
750 ml cold water
½ tablespoon salt
3 tsp of butter / originally oil
the twist – we used a cup of jasmine tea


Preparation:
Wash rice several times in cold water.
Soak the rice and salt in 750 ml water over night in fridge .The following day, ad a pinch of salt, butter and bring to the boil. Simmer and cook covered for 2 hours, stirring occasionally, until it is smooth and creamy.


And then start doing magic. Put the rice into your favourite bowl.
We added some spicy, sour and sweet goodies. Finely chopped fresh ginger, lemon peel, coconut chips, black sesame seeds and yes we cheated with a spoon of lavender honey to make the congee extra sweet. Then we garnished it with some fresh organic figs, pomegranate pearls and winter apples.


There you go. A perfect meal to end your weekend and start a fresh new week.
P.S.You can also make congee as a main dish. Read all about it next week
