This is a basic healing food – a chicken bone broth, with vegetables and the pickings of meat from the carcasses. It is a meal in a bowl I often cook for those who need healing, particularly when they don’t feel like eating.

Congee (in Asian cooking) is a broth or porridge made from rice. In China, it is traditionally a breakfast dish, a plain white rice congee, most often served with side dishes, sometimes a fried egg. My version, which was inspired by the delicious congee served daily at Bread and Circus Wholefood Canteen in Alexandria, NSW, incorporates, home-made organic chicken stock, slow cooked organic chicken and organic brown rice. Creating a deliciously wholesome, easy to digest, comfort food - best eaten anytime of the day or night!Read More
