It's another Food Matters Project Monday and our host this week is Erin of The Goodness Life. Erin chose Chicken Jook (aka congee or hangover helper) with Lots of Vegetables. I have always enjoyed a nice bowl of jook but have never made it before. This is comfort food in a bowl. It takes a few hours to make but they are relaxing hours as you stir a bit and watch the rice break down and thicken as it simmers away.
I followed the recipe from the book which you can find here. I added a squeeze of lemon when I served it that really elevated the flavor of the jook.
You can read what our other members made here on our Food Matters Project site. Want to join in but don't have the book? Drop us a note at Thefoodmattersproject@gmail.com. and we will send you the recipe.
