Excellent!!! very happy with this rice congee (porridge) from the Something for Everyone cookbook made today for miss 8 who has woken up with a temperature. Got to pull out all the stops to make her well again because it’s her birthday tomorrow. She’s asked for two things chicken stock soup and congee. Chicken soup was made in a couple of minutes by mixing the chicken stock paste with water and boiling with some greens from fridge. And this congee recipe is so easy too, just chucked in ginger and spring onion to Thermomix bowl, chop speed 7, add 1000g of chicken stock (2Tb of TM chicken stock paste with 1000g of water), another 250g water and 180 g rice. Then cooked for 25 mins 100C reverse speed stir with butterfly in. Stir through some finely chopped chicken at the end and it cooks in the Thermomix when left to stand for 10 minutes. Served with a dash of sesame oil, soy sauce, finely sliced  spring onion. Wow, couldn’t be simpler and so tasty with the chicken stock base. Normally I’d be boiling chicken frames with rice and standing at the stove for ages but not today, it’s all  made in time for lunch with no trips to supermarket and no standing stirring in the kitchen. Yah! Nb try 10 grams less rice next time, so it’s a bit thinner because it thickens on standing.
