Eggcellent Breakfast Congee

Congee (aka jook or rice porridge) is a popular breakfast (or anytime) meal in China. It is very easily digested because the ratio of rice to liquid is 1:8. This recipe combines the warming spices: ginger, garlic, onion, scallion, plus sesame seeds to strengthen kidney yang. Eggs, besides being part of a traditional breakfast, are the perfect food to improve fertility. Be sure to get organic, pasture raised eggs for the most benefit.

  • 6 cups of water

  • 2 cups organic chicken bone broth

  • 1 cup organic jasmati rice, rinsed and drained

  • Garlic powder

  • Onion powder

  • Dried ginger

  • Black pepper

  • Pinch of sea salt
