Mary Margaret Chappell
When Mary Margaret Chappell first started out in the plant-based food world as a writer, editor, and recipe developer, she was a bacon-loving former pastry chef who didn’t think she could ever cook without butter. Fourteen years, four cookbooks, dozens of cooking classes, and hundreds of recipes later, her favorite thing in the world is sharing the tips, techniques, and recipes that show just how easy and delicious whole-food, plant-based cooking can be. The former food editor of Vegetarian Times magazine has done away with her dependency on butter and is honing her skills at baking with natural sweeteners. Chappell lives in France, where plant-based eating can often be a challenge, but the fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes available are simply amazing.

I’m making this as I write, and can hardly wait because it smells amazing! However, the cooking times in the recipe I’m having to double or triple. Maybe it changes with elevation, like baking does?
I’m finding the same thing. The only thing I can think of is that they use 2 cups of broth to prepare the rice (instead of water) and then the last cup to soften the rice mixture.
Still playing with this one since it’s so yummy. Added Sriracha, sesame oil, and soy to the mushrooms and tofu. Added red pepper flakes to the rice mix. Very good!
This looks absolutely delicious! I’ve been looking for a congee recipe and am so happy to have found this one. But, I don’t see ingredients or instructions for the broth. Where will I find them?
Are there ingredients instructions for the broth?
Ann, I just used the vegan version of “Better Than Bouillon” from the store, but there is a homemade vegetable broth recipe in the FOK cookbook.
This is really delicious! I can’t digest large quantities of fruit / fructose so most breakfast recipes are off the table for me. This one is so yummy and nourishing. I added a teaspoon of honey, a sprinkle of cinnamon, a tsp of coriander powder, and a tsp of onion powder for an extra boost of flavor. So tasty and I love how light it is!
I love this topped with kimchi! Makes a hearty, savory breakfast.
I used leftover brown rice added raisins, granny smith apple, pumpkin seeds and ground flax seed with 1/2 c. of unsweetened vanilla almond milk. spiced it with cinnamon
This was excellent. As suggest by Jackie (thank you!), I coated the tofu with 1 tbs of Braggs, a drizzle of sriracha and a tsp of roasted sesame oil: yum.
Pretty simple, easy, and healthy! Just a tad bit bland so I used a little bit of Chinese five spice on the mushrooms. I feel like it’s missing something… not sure what but still good!
A squirt of sriracha, dash of soy sauce, and an little sesame oil really amp up the flavor. Also recommend: chopped peanuts and cilantro. Congee is like the Asian version of oatmeal. It’s all about the toppings!
