Pumpkin Oyster porridge

Since Terry starts eating solid, I like giving him "rich" porridge meaning with lots of ingredients in it. The rich porridge will have at least 3 ingredients including meats.

Happened that day I'm cooking my favourite rich porridge for the boy and Mummy Moon interested to know the ingredients and the look of the porridge. Whenever we MSN before noon time, we always ask each other what we cook for the day.

So here it is my favourite version of pumpkin oyster porridge with a total of 6 ingredients in it. There are garlic, dried scallops, oyster, pumpkin, meat and China salted vege. It is sweet and fragrant with those combination of nourishment ingredients.

Main ingredients are the pumpkin (cut in dices) and meats (dices or minced and marinated it with salt, soya sauce, pepper, corn flour and sesame oil), others all putting in a little will do. For 1 cup of rice, I used 3 pieces garlics (chop fine), 4 small dried scallops, 3 oysters (chop fine) and 1 teaspoon of China salted vege. For the oysters, if you don't like the fishy smell, can stir fried it with garlic first. Salted vege is optional.

For me in cooking the plain porridge, garlics and dried scallop is always a must to enhance the taste and I find that pumpkin is also an easy-going vege with other additional of ingredients. Another combination I have tried are pumpkin with cranberry beans (珍珠豆) and pumpkin with carrot.

1 cup of rice can last for 1 meal or 2 meals or 3 meals for terry???

Waseh! Indeed a very RICH porridge! I never cooked porridge with so many ingredients before, the most is about 4-5 ingredient only. Your version must taste good and it sure full of nutrition!

But the portion seems very big ah? I think 1 cup of rice is for both you and Terry? Because normally I just cook 1/4 cup of rice for my girl's lunch.

I also like to use lots of ingredients to cook my baby's porridge. I normally have 8-10 ingredients in her porridge. Check out the porridge which I normally cook for my baby at http://healthiswealth.healthfreakmommy.com/?p=151

Thanks for the great idea.

I have never thought to use dried oyster to cook for Sarah's porridge.

I wonder what is the purpose of adding the garlic? More aroma is it?
