Mom's Oven --- Congee Style Recipe

I stayed in my sister's house for many months.  One day, it seemed like I felt so cold even though the heater was on and I couldn’t even go out to buy something because of the snow.  I decided to look on the freezer and asked myself, “What do we still have in here? hmmm…. frozen foods like vegetables, fish, and chicken… I wished I had brought fresh vegetables from our garden instead of frozen vegetables to cook.  I think   (?.?) I need something else that can make me feel warm.”  I looked and looked and saw there was leftover cooked rice from yesterday’s cooking.  This should not be wasted, so I decided to make this simple, tasty leftover cooked rice recipe. Try it for breakfast, or lunch, or dinner. It’s not only delicious, but also nutritious because of well-balanced ingredients included. My niece and nephews were also very delighted while eating it.  


3 c       leftover cooked brown or white rice, no lumps
2 tbsp  cooking oil
2 tbsp  garlic, minced
5 c       water
1 tsp    Italian seasoning
2 tsp    Lawry’s seasoned salt
5 pcs   chicken flavor cubes
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
3 pcs   Tyson Southern style breast tenderloins, thawed and sliced
2 c       frozen or fresh vegetables
            fresh egg (optional)

Preparation Time:  approximately 20 minutes

Cooking Time:  approximately 45 minutes

1)  Heat the pot.  Put the cooking oil and sauté garlic until brown.

2)  Add in the cooked brown rice and stir fry for 10 minutes. (Note:  We usually eat brown rice.)

3) Pour water and let it boil.  Mash the rice while stirring  continuously as shown in this video.


4) Mix in the four seasoning ingredients.  Mash again while stirring  continuously until they become soft and achieve consistency. 

5)  Add the sliced breast tenderloins and stir for 5 minutes.

6)  Mix in the vegetable for a well-balanced diet. If the vegetable is  frozen type, mix in, cover the pot, turn off the  burner, and let it  stand for 5 minutes.  If the vegetable is fresh,  cook for 5  minutes before  turning off the burner, cover the pot, and then  let it stand for 5  minutes also.  Fresh egg can also be  mixed in.  (Note:   Vegetables  are  better half cooked to eat because they  lose their  nutrients  when  overcooked.)

Servings:  approximately 10 cups
