Ready to switch up your oatmeal game? Try a savory oatmeal bowl. It’s the perfect healthy meal for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
When I was little, one my favorite things to eat was Chinese rice porridge or congee. It was an ooey-gooey bowl full of warm goodness. There’s a sweet version and a savory version.
When I was sick, my mom would make me sweet congee — porridge with a spoonful of sugar swirled in. It was a miracle cure for my colds and flus. To this day, whenever I’m sick, I long for a bowl of sweet rice porridge.
But my favorite was the savory kind. We’d have it for dinner out in Chinatown or my mom would make it at home and we’d adorn it with an array of toppings spread out on the dining table’s Lazy Susan — Chinese sausage, salty green vegetables, mushrooms, some other Chinese ingredients I didn’t recognize (and didn’t want to know what it was!).
