Deluxe Baby Porridge

Serving: 2 servings of 8 oz | Prep Time: 10 mins | Cook Time: 45 mins

Ingredients:

1/4 cup rice
3 cups water
3 oz protein (chicken, fish, pork, or beef)
1 oz sweet potato (orange-color), cut into small pieces
1 oz pumpkin or kabocha, cut into small pieces
1 or 2 dried scallops (removed after cooked)
1 tablespoon dried silver fish, rinsed
1 ring onion, cut into small pieces
3-4 broccoli florets or 3 wedges tomato
1 egg yolk

Method:

Put the rice into a small pot and rinse with cold water a few times. Discard the cloudy water and add 3 cups of filtered water into the rice. Add all the ingredients into the pot and bring it to bowl on medium heat. Lower the heat to simmer, cover the pot, and let cook for 45 minutes or until the rice breaks down completely. If using egg yolk, lightly beat the egg yolk and add to the porridge. Stir a few times, and let cook for about 1-2 minutes. Before serving, remove the dried scallops (you can eat them) before using a blender to puree the porridge. Serve it cool to avoid burning your baby.

    Thanks for the recipe! Very excited to give this to my baby. What is the biggest batch you have made (how many cups of rice) and have you tried freezing this with success? Thanks again!

    • No freezing. According to the Chinese, you don’t want to feed overnight porridge to baby as it will have “winds.” The batch is about 20 oz, good for two meals of 8 oz each.

    Wow! Bee, this is delicious. I too have been feeding my son sweet potato porridge.. at first he rejected it …& I kept trying till he finally opened his mouth. He’s been eating it for the past 1 month & then I started mixing it with butternut squash & pumpkin & instead of boiling it with water, I use homemade chicken stock. Your son is definitely luckly to have a mama who can make wonderful food. :)
    Question: Are you using dried silverfish? Is pre-soaked needed or just dump it into the pot?

    Thanks for all these great baby recipes Bee! Can’t wait to try them out. I have a 9 month old at the moment and have just recently started her on porridge so far we have only tried simple chicken and fish, I add carrot with them and as for fish I have used deep sea perch and cod fish, she seems to like it. Please keep the baby recipes coming I am looking forward to more! :)

  6. This looks fantastic Bee! I also love cooking for my little one…she is almost 2 so it’s getting more and more exciting :) I haven’t tried giving her things like dried scallop and silver fish but will start soon as I want her to develop Asian flavors :)

    Tasty n sweet congee. However as my son’s 19 mths I would next time around reduce the cooking time to 20-30 mins so that it won’t be so smooth.
