Forbidden Rice Congee with Corn, Pancetta and Balsamic Drizzle

Make a place at the breakfast table for congee – a creamy rice porridge. This forbidden rice (black rice) version is a unique way to start the day, loaded with corn, salty pancetta, shredded Gruyere and an unexpected seasoning – ground nutmeg. It’s a welcome balance of nutty, sweet and oh-so-savory, drizzled with a tangy balsamic glaze to finish.
