Red Rice & Barley Congee with Mango & Coconut

Say “good morning” to Congee, the traditional Asian rice porridge.  This new version finds its sweeter side with a mash-up of red rice, pearl barley, sweet-tart cranberries and warm spices – cinnamon, ginger, allspice and cloves. Cooked until creamy, it’s the perfect base for a toasted coconut topping, mango chunks and a dollop of cool, refreshing yogurt and pomegranate molasses drizzle.
