Vegetarian "Century Egg" Congee (Version 2)

When I first created the Veg*n Century Egg Congee (using Avocado & Shiitake Mushroom to replace century egg) in 2007, I have thought of using Grass Jelly (Chin Chow) instead of shitake mushroom. Finally, gave it a try some time back.

It is even much easier, just cook some plain congee with vegetable stock or season with mushroom bouillon. Prior to serving, adding the avocado dices and grass jelly! That’s it!

Frozen the rice grain (washed) for few hours in the freezer before cooking the congee, it helps to speed up the cooking time and all you need is about 15 – 20 minutes.
