12 cup long-grain rice or 12 cup short-grain rice
5 cups low-fat chicken broth or 5 cups water
Combine ingredients for the congee in a saucepan, bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 2 hours. Or use leftover rice with about twice as much liquid as rice. Simmer until the porridge has a smooth consistence. Pour into soup bowls. Top with your choice of toppings and condiments. If serving a large group, a larger choice than 2 or 3 toppings might be served.
