Eight Treasure Congee

Soups and Congees

Eight Treasure Congee
½ cup dried Chinese red beans
1/4 cup raw peanuts
4 cups cooked sticky rice
1/4 cup rock sugar
1 teaspoon coarse salt
½ cup walnuts or blanched almonds, slivered
1/4 cup cooked pitted Chinese red dates, quartered
1/4 to ½ cup goji berries

1. Soak the beans, peanuts, and the rice in separate covered bowls overnight; then drain them the next morning, and cook them in separate pots until each one is soft; then drain and combine them.
2. Cover the nuts with boiling water and refrigerate them covered over night. Drain in the morning and rub them in a towel to remove their paper-like skins.
3. Next, put them in a large pot with four cups of cold water, add the peanuts and sticky rice and bring to the boil. Now reduce the heat and simmer until the liquid is creamy and thick, stirring it often. Then, add the sugar and salt, dates and goji berries and cook until all are soft. Serve or refrigerate until needed.
