Pumpkin and Meatballs Porridge

After 9 days of vegetarian diet and having rice for most meals, I suddenly miss porridge.  Since I have some leftover pumpkin after cooking Stir Fry Pumpkin with Miso, I cooked this porridge for weekend meal.  I added some broccoli for fiber and colour.
I cooked half this recipe enough for 3 and each has more than a bowl.
Verdict - tasty, fragrant porridge with long missed meat and sweet pumpkin.  
Recipe Source - Yum Yum Magazine No. 89
[serve 5-6]
500 gm minced meat
- marinate with 1/2 tsp each of salt and sesame oil, 1/4 tsp  each of pepper and sugar, 1 egg white and 1 tbsp cornstarch
1 bowl rice + 10 bowls water
300 gm pumpkin - peeled and cut wedges
50 gm dried scallop - rinsed
salt and pepper to taste
some broccoli florets - optional
  1. Wash and soak rice in water for 1 hour.  Bring to boil, then add in scallops.
  2. Lower heat to simmer until rice is soft.  Add in pumpkin to cool until both rice and pumpkin are very soft.
  3. Add in meatballs and cook for a further 10 minutes.
  4. Add in salt to taste.  Add in broccoli to cook [if using] until it turns bright green and cooked.
  5. Off heat, dish up to serve.

Kimmy, this porridge is simple but good. Everything all in one and I like the addition of pumpkin!

Hi Joyce, I think this porridge is suitable for the young and old. The broccoli can be cut into smaller pieces and cooked until soft.

Kimmy said...

Hi Phong Hong, surprisingly tasty and nutritious. So easy to cook and suitable for all in the family.

Oh yes I too make pumpkin porridge occasionally ... mine not so much 'liao' ... just pumpkin + rice and I will open a can of braised peanut ^-^

This is really good for the young and the old. I dun have to waste time cooking separately for my teething baby and I can enjoy piping hot porridge during autumn. Love this porridge :)

Such a simple yet so delicious satisfying meal! Thanks for linking with CYB!

Hi Karen, sometimes I love to cook something simple but I have to consider my hubby's liking too. Adding more 'liao' to prevent complaints, hehehe!. Enjoying food.

Kimmy said...

Hi Eileen, it is simpl, easy and quick. Yet appetising for a one dish meal.

Kimmy said...

Hi Miss B, you are correct. This is a good dish to cook when it's cold, when the cook is lazy and when we wanted some good food quickly, hehehe!.

Kimmy said...

Hi Jess, do try it when you are cooking for your son. I think you will like it. It's very tasty.

Kimmy said...

Hi Joyce, this recipe published in the food magazine is reliable. Good porridge for all.
