Black Sesame Vegetable Porridge

Vegetables for breakfast? Yes please! This warm and comforting porridge is a twist on typical breakfasts found all over Asia like congee and jook. Typically, porridge recipes call for just water when cooking the base grains. This is all well and good but if you want to create both a luxurious mouthful as well as a rich flavor, reach for a bottle of Three Trees Black Sesame Milk.

Ingredients

Porridge

2 Tbsp oil of choice

1 medium onion, diced

8 oz mushrooms of choice, thinly sliced (optional)

1 c brown rice, rinsed

1 c forbidden rice, rinsed

28 fl oz Three Trees Black Sesame Milk (1 bottle)

28 fl oz water

Pinch of salt

Topping & Garnish Ideas

2 scallions, thinly sliced on the bias

Large handful of soft greens such as spinach or microgreens

Sauteed bok choy

Sesame oil

Sesame seeds

Chile flakes

Tamari

Sauteed mushrooms

Tofu

Soft boiled egg

Directions

Porridge

Add oil to a large heavy bottomed pot over medium low heat. Add onion, a pinch of salt and saute for about 10 minutes, covered, until translucent.

Add mushrooms and another pinch of salt. Continue to saute until they lose their moisture and wilt.

Add both types of rice, Black Sesame Milk and a pinch of salt. Cover and bring to a boil over medium high heat and then reduce to a gentle simmer for approximately 45 minutes. The porridge should be thick and will require the occasional stir to prevent burning. You may wish to add additional milk or water if the liquid evaporates too fast or you prefer to have a thinner texture.

Ladle into bowls and garnish as desired.

Notes

Increase the umami factor further by mixing a generous spoonful of miso into the porridge just before serving.

This can be kept for up to 5 days in the fridge. When reheating you will likely need additional liquid (either Black Sesame Milk or water) to return the porridge to its original consistency.

Want a sweet take on the porridge? Omit the onions and mushrooms and garnish with fresh fruit, yogurt and warm spices like cinnamon, allspice and clove.
