Cho u Xanh [VEGAN Rice Porridge with Green Mung Beans Recipe]

Cháo is the Vietnamese version of congee, and is the perfect comfort food for when you’re sick! I’ve added green mung beans for extra protein and fibre, and topped it with all of my favourite savoury goodies that make this dish the ultimate, savoury bowl of warmth.

  1. Sorry for the late video, some of you might have seen on my snap story that I’ve been having a rough week, health wise haha. I figured this comforting bowl of goodness was the perfect dish to share <3

  2. I’m going to try this way. I learned to make this in Vietnam, but I seem to recall dried mushrooms and lots of ginger in it. When I do make it, I put it all together in my slow cooker at night, then it is ready for breakfast in the morning. I add my toppings – cilantro, some sesame oil and put peas in at the last minute. It is waterier than yours looks.

  3. Can you do a video on vegan banh xeo? I’ve been on a vegan banh xeo kick lately, and while there are a couple of Viet/ Asian vegan restaurants here in SF Bay Area that do great versions, I would like to learn how to make it at home.

  4. I made this yesterday and it turned out awesome! I added an extra cup of mung beans because I like to live on the edge :p

    When all was said and done I added some Korean hot chilli pepper flakes and a whole bunch of kale 🙂

    I added the green onion oil mixture which is DELISH!

    Today I added mushrooms and sriracha sauce for a nice kick.

    ❤️ to you darlin!

    PS I hope the sushi impressions come back lol
