Warm, comforting, low-stress. Elsie Yan congee makes our hearts (and stomachs) full.

"It's been awhile since I made low carb porridge or congee. I decided to make this chicken congee topped with salted egg yolks and it was so tasty and comforting. It's simple and quick using miracle rice and konjac flour from Miracle Noodle. So, if you're missing a warm and comforting bowl of congee, try this guiltfree recipe.
