A Simple Meal

The many rounds of festive feasting has taken its toll, and one night, I woke up clutching my overworked stomach in pain :( Before Chinese New Year, I had better recuperate somewhat. Made for myself a really light but still tasty meal

Ingredients for the Convalescent's Porridge
  • Brown rice (for extra nutrition)
  • Dried scallops (makes the porridge marvellously unami)
  • Ginger slices (for the queasy stomach)
  • Carrot (to use up my rabbits' leftovers)
  • A dash of chicken stock powder

One of the side dishes was Japanese pickled anchovies, which I picked up one day at Isetan's Hokkaido food fair. The other was a childhood favourite - tinned meat sauce.
