Nourishing Cordyceps Congee

Congee is medicinal and nourishing, the ultimate healing food. Rice is simple to digest, and the broth that it is cooked in, combined with the herbal accompaniments, pack a high nutritional punch for such a simple meal. We love adding a variety of medicinal mushrooms and herbs to our congees - favorites include shiitake, reishi, astragalus, chaga, cordyceps, and lion’s mane.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tbs SuperFeast Cordyceps
  • 4 cups chicken stock (we prefer homemade)
  • 1 cup jasmine rice, washed and drained
  • 1 organic chicken, cut into pieces. Use the breast and drumsticks for this recipe, keep the rest for your next broth OR 2 organic chicken Marylands
  • 1cm ginger bashed, or 1 Tbs dried ginger
  • 3 spring onions, chopped finely, green part only (save the whites for frying, see below)
  • 1/3 cup fried shallots (we fry the whites above in coconut oil)
  • Light soy sauce or tamari
  • Few sprigs of coriander including stalks, chopped
  • White pepper, to taste
  • Few drops of sesame oil

 

METHOD

  1. Place chicken stock, rice, chicken pieces and ginger into a medium pot and bring to the boil. Lower to a simmer and cook until the rice has broken down to a thick soup. Congee may be cooked to several different stages and textures depending on what your preference is. We like ours mushy!

  2. To serve, remove chicken and shred nicely. Return the shredded meat to the congee with the SuperFeast Cordyceps and stir. Save the bones for your next broth. Spoon one to two ladles of congee into a bowl and serve with a sprinkle of spring onions, coriander, shallots, a drizzle of soy, pinch of white pepper and sesame oil. 

Note: This recipe can be made vegan by using vegan broth in place of chicken broth and by omitting the chicken. You can also buy good quality broth from organic markets, or make your own. We save all our kitchen scraps and peels and make a lovely broth every week or two. Be wary of bouillon cubes; they’re  usually full of poor quality salts ,‘natural flavor's and MSG.
