热乎乎黏糊糊的八宝粥Congee/Porridge

粥,我最爱的食物。腊八节熬一锅热乎乎稠糊糊的八宝粥,喝了不想家。

食材不是一成不变的,你可以按照自己的喜好更换或添加任何米、豆子、干果…

Congee is a traditional food Chinese people eat during Laba Festival. Because it is very easy to make,many family in north part of China eat it quite often. My family eat congee for every dinner with some stir fried green vegetable. I am still keeping this habit. A light dinner like congee will not give our digestion system too much work at night.
Ingredients is not firmed. You can use any grains, beans, nuts,dried fruits you want.

PS:The Laba (simplified Chinese: 腊八; traditional Chinese: 臘八; literally: “Eighth of La”) is a traditional Chinese holiday celebrated on the eighth day of the La Month (or Layue 臘月), the twelfth month of the Chinese calendar. It is customary on this day to eat Laba Congee. The Laba Festival had not been on a fixed day until the Southern and Northern dynasties, when it was influenced by Buddhism and got a fixed time on the eighth day of twelfth month, which was also the enlightenment day of the Buddha. Therefore, many customs of the Laba Festival are related to Buddhism. It corresponds directly to the Japanese Rohatsu and the South Asian Bodhi Day.(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laba_Festival)
