KITCHEN HACKS: Congee in ziplock bag

When I’m sick, I always crave for nutritious food like congee or soup. Unfortunately, living on my own means having nobody to prepare those meals for me. I’ve tried ordering meals and having them delivered to me; it did nothing to speed up my recovery or make me feel any better.

So I thought of making ‘instant homemade congee’ where all I have to do I can pop a packet into the rice cooker and enjoy a bowl of hot congee in a while. The idea is same with our ‘Instant smoothie’. Instead of freezing fruits in ziplock bag, we freeze rice grains and vegetables instead.Vegetable Congee In Ziplock Bag

The idea
Keep washed rice and nutritious vegetables in ziplock bag and freeze it. When you’re sick or feeling lazy to cook, pour the packet into the rice cooker and water into rice cooker to cook.

Since it’s made for sick days, it should be healthy and easy to digest. That’s why we picked colourful vegetables like tomato, carrot and potatoes. You could add anything you like such as minced chicken or scallops.
