健康八宝营养粥 Heathy 8 Treasures Porridge



I love eating congee ever since childhood days. It gives me co much comfort to gulp down a huge bowl of any type of warm congee and feeling the warm congee gliding its way into tummy. 
我自小就爱吃米粥。尤其是当那热腾腾的粥吃进嘴里后一股温暖的热粥滑入肚子里的感觉极之享受。

Today I am sharing this recipe to the porridge fans who also share the same food interest as me. In this recipe, I used lotus nuts instead of gingko nuts as I happened to run out of it. Either way, both of them have their nourishing and health properties which are commonly used in chinese cooking. The only set back to me is bitter after taste of the lotus nuts as compared to that of gingko nuts. All in all the porridge turned out as yummy as I hoped.
这道米粥食谱是分享给热爱吃粥的粉丝们。在这道食谱中我因家里缺货没采用白果而采用了莲子。莲子及白果都是各有自己的独特营养功效,也是时常用于中菜和甜品里边。唯一要注意的是莲子味带苦,你若介意的话还是用回白果较好。最后煮出来的成品一点都没有任何苦味而且还很好吃呢!

The process of soaking the ingredients like rice, lily bulbs, gingko nuts and peanuts and freeze it overnight helps to soften the them thus utilize shorter cooking time. I personally like this method very much especially when its used in porridge cooking.
