Congee wasn’t something that I grew up eating or something that was even on my radar until recently. Until watching season 12 of Top Chef (one of my favorite shows) I never knew that it was so very versatile. Mei Lin made congee twice during season 12.

My oldest daughter loves broccoli soup, it is one of her favorite soups. I decided that I would try making it in my pressure cooker ( I use this one) on a very snowy night two years ago. It was a perfect meal for that cold snowy night, but we have also enjoyed it in the middle of summer. It turned out SO good and it was SO fast that I have never made it another way since. Soup in just over 5 minutes?! Get out! The first time I made it I didn’t measure anything ~ my normal way of cooking. I soon had friends asking for the recipe so I had to create a recipe with some type of measurement. It is still a soup that is requested by my daughter a few times each winter. One that will be on my menu this upcoming week. Make it before winter is over, you will be hooked on how easy it is – and chances are that you will never make it on the stove top again.
