Chinese Peanut Congee

Have been feeling under the weather recently due to the lack of sleep and probably the lack of vitamins too. Nothing makes me feel better than a bowl of  comforting congee. I haven't been to the supermarket recently so the challenge is to cook up a bowl of flavoursome congee using only dried ingredients in the fridge.


1 bowl                   rice
5 large                   dried oysters or 8 small/medium ones
5 large                   dried scallops or 8 small/medium ones
1/2 cup                  peanut
1 inch                    old ginger shredded


Rinse and soak the rice, dried oysters and dried scallops for 30minutes to 1 hour.

Rinse the peanuts and boil them in water while you soak the abovementioned ingredients.

Add all ingredients together with 1 litre of water and bring to boil. Lower heat and simmer for another 2 hours, adding more water when necessary. Season with salt before serving.
