Spicy Brown Rice Ginger Congee – Ginger flavored Brown rice congee topped with roasted mushrooms, peas, and corn; finally garnished with fiery habanero sauce and chopped green onions

Hi there, it’s been snowing all day in Burgh and I am completely locked in my room inside my cozy blanket watching snowfall through my wide windows. It’s kind of lazy Sunday today and I have been blowing my nose up for every second. Yes, I am suffering from congestion.

Whenever I am sick, I prefer to simple comfort hearty meal and congee is my favorite to satisfy my inner me when I am sick. There are no hard fastened rules for preparing congee. It turns out exotic when you prepare according to your flavors and taste buds.

Here is my simple recipe tuned to my taste and flavors


  • 1 cup Brown rice
  • 1 teaspoon Grated Ginger
  • 4 cups Water
  • ¼ cup Boiled Peas
  • ¼ cup Boiled Corn
  • 1 cup Mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Olive Oil
  • ¼ teaspoon Soy Sauce
  • ½ teaspoon Haberno Sauce (adjust according to your spice level)
