1/3 cup white miso paste
3cm fresh ginger

Spring onions (to garnish)

Congee with Chicken and Egg


Congee (umami rice porridge) is the ultimate comfort food, and best of all, you can choose what to top it with! We’ve used chicken and egg for this one – real comfort in a bowl!


Ingredients:


100g sushi rice
2 cooked chicken breasts (shredded)
750ml chicken stock
2 garlic cloves (crushed)
2 spring onions
10g fresh coriander (finely chopped)
Thumb-sized piece of ginger (grated)
1 egg (optional)


Instructions:


1. Rinse the rice until the water runs clear. Add to a saucepan with the chicken stock, 250ml water, garlic and ginger. Bring to a simmer. Reduce heat and cook for 30-40mins. Remember to stir frequently so that the rice doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan!
2. Boil the egg to your liking, peel and halve. Add on top of the congee.
3. Season the congee to taste and garnish with finely chopped spring onions, cooked strips of chicken and finely chopped coriander. Enjoy!



Stir-fried Egg and Tomato


Perhaps a flashback into childhood? This easy-to-make egg and tomato stir-fry is a comfort food favourite for many! Serve it over rice or on its own with a dash of sriracha.


Ingredients:


2 eggs
1 ½ tbsp vegetable oil
2 medium tomatoes
1 spring onion
½ tbsp sugar
Salt (to season)


Instructions:


1. Crack two eggs into a bowl. Add a pinch of salt and ½ tbsp of oil. Whisk together until mixed and set aside.
2. Slice the spring onion. Set aside.
3. Cut the tomatoes into small wedges. Set aside.
4. Heat a wok or a frying pan over medium-high heat with roughly ½ tbsp of oil. Add the egg mixture and cook until the egg liquid solidifies. Turn off heat and break the egg into pieces. Set aside.
5. Add the tomato wedges to the wok with a little oil and stir-fry for 1-2 mins. Return the egg pieces to the wok. Add salt, sugar and spring onions. Quickly stir-fry everything together.
6. Serve immediately on its own with a dash of sriracha or sesame oil, or with rice.
