Simple Chinese Meals
Jenny (my co-worker who met us in Beijing) just passed on a couple very traditional and simple Chinese meals.
1 Cup of Rice
10 Cups of water
Put it in the slow cooker over night
Its "like" congee, but a soup.
Can be had for breakfast as well.
Add some dried veg/fruit as a side dish with it.
A couple of eggs in a little water
Mix it together (ala scrambled eggs)
Microwave until cooked
It should be like a quiche, but without any meet or vegs
Add a little soya-sauce on top when served
Egg Soup #1
Crack some eggs to a couple cups of boiling water
The eggs will stay somewhat together if the water is really boiling well.
Eat as a soup
If there are 5 people, use 5 eggs.
Egg Soup #2
Boil some water
Whisk some eggs together
While stirring the water, slowly add the eggs.
If water is boiling and eggs are stirred in slowly, they should form "noodle" like shapes.
I donno, those seem simple enough that even I might be able to make 'em!
When I asked about making Congee, she said, "Oh, that's too hard for you". :-)
Of course, I now HAVE to learn to make Congee and bring her some.
