How to use Soy Sauce

Soy Sauce

This is a Japanese way of making Congee, which can use leftover Rice.

Congee with Egg  卵入り おじや



2 tablespoons chopped Green Onions
6 ounces cooked Rice
1 cup Dashi
1½ teaspoons Soy Sauce
1 beaten Egg


First line the bottom of a saucepan with the chopped Green Onions, then put in the Rice on top of it.  Add the Dashi and cook over a low simmer for 50 to 60 minutes.  Then add the Soy Sauce, and simmer on a very low fire another 0 minutes.

Remove the Congee from the fire and whisk in the beaten Egg.  As soon as the heat of the Congee makes the Egg set, put it in a covered soup bowl, such as a Japanese domburi  bowl, cover and serve.  This makes a serving for one person.

Congee in various forms is popular around the Pacific Rim, as in a basic Chinese Congee, a Korean Congee made with Mushrooms, an Indian version, and a Japanese style Congee with Milk.
