If you are on a diet ( I should ) this delicious food is perfect. I always buy the 2 kinds of tofu's. The firm type called " momendofu " is good for cooking like the madodofu from my previous post. While the soft one is best eaten cold and raw. Top it with sliced leeks and grated ginger, and just before you eat it drizzle with soy sauce. uhmmm, very oishi !

arroz caldo...my version

My hubby had a bad toothache last week. Scheduled to see his dentist and so for a while he was not able to eat solid food. ( like a baby) Cooked this for him, which I usually prepare only during winter. Nobody ( not even mom) taught me how to cook this so I depended on my memories ( taste) when I first made this. It was okay, but Im not sure if it is how it should really taste. Iremember eating this during rainy seasons and when I was sick! If you want to try, here is my version!

* rice ( 1 1/2 cups )
* garlic ( diced )
* ginger ( diced )
* water ( 1 liter or more )
* chicken ( fillets or bite sizes , my grandmother used chicken wings )
* salt and pepper
* peeled boiled egg and thinly sliced leeks for garnishing


1. Heat a small amount of oil on pot. Add the garlic while its still cold. Add the ginger
and wait until it becomes aromatic.
2. Add the chicken and saute.
3. Now add the rice ( no need to wash ) and stir until grains are coated with oil.
4. Put the water and cover.
5. When it boils, remove cover and stir gently. This is the hard part. You have to keep on
stirring it so the rice will not stick to the bottom of the pot. The rice will gradually thicken
and you can add more water. It depends on how you like your congee.
6. Season with salt and pepper!
7. Garnish with the egg and leeks and voila !!

Very simple and tasty dish to warm our bodies during the cold season.
