Ingredients You Need

To make vegan Congee, you need the following ingredients (plus water):

  • white rice
  • dried shiitake mushrooms
  • daikon radish
  • enoki mushrooms
  • soup stock
  • ginger
  • spring onions (scallions)
  • soy sauce
  • sesame oil
  • chili oil

A detailed recipe with measurements is in the recipe card below.

Ingredient Notes

white rice – I use uncooked Japanese white rice. You could also use Jasmine rice, or other types of long grain white rice.

daikon radish, dried shiitake, and enoki mushrooms – these are optional. Traditionally, basic Congee is just rice and water, so if you don’t have these ingredients, you still can make this dish without them. I prefer adding daikon and mushrooms for added flavor and umami. They can be found at most Asian supermarkets.

soup stock – again, you can make Congee with plain water, but stock will add more depth in flavor. I usually add kombu (kelp) stock powder or vegetable stock granules. (For those in Japan) I recently purchased vegan Chinese bouillon powder from Green’s Vegetarian, and it was great for this recipe. Highly recommend!

How to make vegan Congee

A detailed recipe is in the recipe card at the bottom of this post, but let me give you a quick overview of the process.

Prepare the ingredients

Soak the dried shiitake mushrooms in hot water for 15 minutes. (Reserve the soaking water) Rinse the rice, and cut the vegetables.

Cook on the stove

Add water and all the ingredients to a large pot, and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for 45 minutes. Stir periodically to prevent sticking.

Prepare the toppings and garnish

About half way through cooking, remove the dried shiitake mushrooms from the pot. Cut them into bite size pieces, and fry in a pan with sesame oil and soy sauce. Set aside. For garnish, finely slice fresh ginger, and spring onions (scallions).

Plate and serve

Pour Congee in a bowl, and garnish with mushroom topping, ginger and scallion. Drizzle soy sauce and chili oil to taste. And ENJOY
